Syrian opposition figure triggers debate

Louay Hussein, an Alawite writer, talks to Al Jazeera about his vision for change in Syria.

    After four months of unprecedented protests in Syria, it is still unclear who is leading the demonstrations and who truly speaks for the people who took to the streets.

    Al Jazeera's Rula Amin was in Damascus and was able to meet with some of the activists, including an old time opposition figure.

    Louay Hussein, an Alawite writer, does not claim to speak for all the protesters, yet he triggered heated debate amongst all of them when he outlined his vision for change in Syria.
