Summary
"Since ISIS occupied Raqqa in eastern Syria, it has become one of the most isolated and fear-ridden cities on earth. The sale of television has been banned, wearing pants the wrong length is a punishable offense, and using a cellphone is considered an unforgivable crime. No journalists are allowed in and the penalty for speaking to the western media is death by beheading. Despite this, after several months of nervy and often interrupted conversations, the BBC was able to make contact with a small activist group, Al-Sharqiya 24. Finally, courageously, one of their members agreed to write a personal diary about his experience ... Samer is fighting back the only way he can: by telling the world what is happening to his beloved city. This is Samer's story. Samer (a pseudonym) is twenty-four years old. Having escaped Raqqa, he is living in a refugee camp in northern Syria--From publisher description
