One day after the opposition took Syria’s seat at the Arab league, now they are turning their attention to the UN.

For now, Najib Ghadban can only come into the UN building with the tourists through the visitor’s entrance.

But he has a plan to replace Bashar Al Jaafari, the consistently loyal voice of the Damascus regime.

Ghadban says he will work tirelessly until the flag of Bashar Al Assad’s government is removed for good.
