Berlin - Aleppo Peace March Begins

Hundreds of activists set off from Berlin on Monday on a three and a half month march to Aleppo to raise awareness about the humanitarian crisis in Syria.

Known as the ‘Civil March for Aleppo’, organisers say the group plans to pass through the Czech Republic, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Greece and Turkey.

The team of international organisers, headed by journalist and travel blogger Anna Alboth, have warned participants that they should be prepared to sleep in the ‘wild’ as they rely on public donations for food and shelter along the route.

They plan to cover around 20 kilometres per day -  Contact: civilmarchforaleppo{at}
