About 200 people marched in George St last night, to highlight the plight of those in Idlib, Syria.

The city was taken over by Syrian rebel militias at the beginning of the Syrian Civil War in 2011. But now the Syrian Government is heavily bombing the city, in a bid to drive out the rebel groups and retake the city.

Many of those marching in the Dunedin rally have friends and family in Idlib, and are concerned for their safety and wellbeing.
