Since 2011, the town of Kafranbel in Syria, a place known as a creative hub, has created political cartoons and English-language messages to help spread awareness of the pro-democracy struggle there. Often, these messages feature themes of compassion for victims of tragedies in the West, with one notable example being their condolences after the Boston Bombing.
