A Syrian boy "resigns" from the Ba'th's vanguards

A boy from Douma reads a speech resigning from the Ba'th vanguards (for youngsters in every school). A very symbolic video, part of the media wars between the two sides. Notice the Quran and the chosen clothing; it might be more symbolic as Syrians are generally conservative and religious. Douma has a strong Pan-Arab presence since Nasser's days, but of course there are plenty of Islamists everywhere and they are definitely less backward and repressive than the current brutal regime.
