Meet Reese Erlich: Reporting on 2011 Syrian Uprising

Reese Erlich is a rare voice coming out of Syria during this turbulent time. As one of very the few journalists able to get into Syria to report on the uprising, Erlich explains the tactics used by anti-regime demonstrators as well as their goals: free elections, a parliamentary system and an end to corruption. His reports give voice to all sides: regime loyalists, anti-government activists, businessmen, bazaar merchants, Kurdish refugees and other ethnic and religious minorities.
