Assad Thugs Even in The Universities
I arrived to my university "The private Arab- European University", on 15th November 2011. I noticed a level of tension among the students; there was a general mood suggests there might be a plan for sit in calling to free our colleagues who were arrested for demonstrating. The university administration determined to cancel all classes for the rest of the day a...nd directed the students to the buses taking them out to their cities.
The students demonstrated for about 5 minutes before heading to the buses, they called to topple the regime and trial Bashar and everyone involved in killing Syrian peaceful citizens. The demonstration then dispersed and the students headed towards the buses.
Meanwhile, a group of pro- Assad students were tracing one of with Sticks and beatings. In the meantime a number of security forces' vehicles arrived along with buses full of thugs (Shabiha militias), they banned the students’ buses from leaving the university campus.
One of the officers got out of the security car and started to insult the pro- Assad students as according to him they weren’t able to prevent the demonstration, he demanded them to play a bigger role in suppressing any kind of demonstrations - at whatever cost – even if it cost them to kill whoever mentions the word "freedom" and bury him in the university campus.
The thugs were getting out of their buses; some of them are members in the National Union of Syrian Students and were armed with sticks and electric batons. They started to distribute these weapons to the pro-regime students, and the voice of the security officer was loudly heard booming out and demanding them to get onto the students' buses and "bring down those dogs", referring to the students who had participated in the demonstration, as well as any student known to be in opposition to the regime, even those who had not participated in the demonstration.
Thus began the process of forcing the students off the buses one after the other, each one harshly beaten with rods on his/her descent and given all forms of insult; following this, all the teachers, staff and students still inside the university building and classrooms were taken outside in the most undignified and humiliating way, to say the least, especially considering this took place in an academic environment.
At this point, one of the older female teachers fainted, so myself and a colleague of mine proceeded to bring her to a university ambulance, despite the fact that the harassment to which we were being subjected by the regime’s thugs had reached the point where they were hitting and insulting the teacher who had already fainted; when the driver of the ambulance switched on the ambulance siren, he was stopped and beaten because of it, based on claims by the security men that the wailing siren could cause concern among people outside the university campus; the driver was forced to switch it off.
Meanwhile, out in the campus courtyard, the security officers started arresting students after having beaten them, and forced them to get on the thugs bus. Next, they forced four students to kneel and gave them various forms of insults and beatings, while in front of the college entrance were a group of armed men yielding Kalashnikovs who started picking up one by one the students lying practically on top of each other, in a scene that resembled the actions done by the bands of thugs (Shabiha militias) in the famous video footage from Beida village in Banyas.
The number of students detained on that day is close to thirty, one of whom was a female student who, after refusing to be subjected to their humiliation, started being beaten by members of the security forces; she was arrested and loaded into the security forces' bus, which was incessantly shaking as a result of the beatings and abuse of students ongoing inside.
After finishing their abuse of the university students and teaching staff, the thugs – in stark violation of all forms of humanitarian principles – played a loud recording from one of their vehicles and began to dance what appeared to be the dance that tribes used to do in historic times at the moment of slaughtering their fellow humans, but here it was played against a background of music praising the greatness, achievements and merits of the Syrian President, chanting "We are the Shabiha... for the (slaughtered) opposition"...
While this party was going on, a security officer invited the pro-regime students to take the electric batons to be used within the academic hours of the university, instructing them to use them immediately to suppress any kind of movement against the regime; he also gave them his mobile number, requesting them to inform him immediately if the university’s administration objected to their having these sticks, threatening the teaching and administrative staff if they objected.
They then proceeded to enter the school building and proceeded to damage it, including the English language department and the faculty of Pharmaceutical studies, also passing through the office of the University’s Dean - even he was not protected from their vandalism.
Finally, after four hours during which we were helpless spectators of this terrorist operation, they let us finally leave towards the town, forced to leave our comrades and friends to face their unknown fates; our hearts are appealing to the darkness of their prison cells that they will be safe and protected the barbarism of these monsters.
