The revolutionary movement of Syria has not only been asking for a political change when it took the streets in 2011, but also to reaffirm the existence of individuality in society. Our personal individuality was brutally oppressed by the dictatorial one-party ruling and the purely state-controlled organizations and trade unions, striving to ideologically uniform the people from the youngest age in the Baath Pioneer Organization.
With the recapturing of our personal identity, we Syrians regained a public space to express our thoughts and ideas through creativity and arts. But at the same time, we are confronted with new questions: Have we really outgrown from our role as pioneer comrades that we used to be? Or has the pioneer comrade from the past who stood in rank and file chanting meaningless slogans has only changed its looks, now chanting Jihadist slogans that are full of the same “state pioneer” spirit of the past?
