It’s Friday. For regimes struggling to hold onto power in Middle Eastern autocracies, that means massive protests.

Information is sketchy at this point, but it is clear that Syrian authorities are firing on protesters.  Between five to ten people have been killed in protests throughout the central part of the country.

Here is the latest video from NewsTsar.  Warning: some graphic content.
