Ghosts of Aleppo

SBS VICELAND December 21, 2016

Aleppo is Syria's largest metropolitan area and a millennia-old commercial capital. Today, however, it is a relative ghost town, threatened by regime bombing from the air and a militant offensive on the ground. For two weeks over the summer, VICE News embeds with the Islamic Front, a coalition of Islamist rebels fighting the forces of President Bashar al-Assad on one hand, and Islamic State militants on the other. From their secret tunnels beneath the ancient city to their threatened frontline outposts in Aleppo's ruined medieval centre, VICE NEWS followed the Islamic Front as, against overwhelming odds, they battled to retain control of the capital of the Syrian revolution.

What if there was one day when, for 24 hours, the world stopped killing? Is the idea of lasting world peace one day an impossible dream? Not for young Londoner, former sci-fi actor and filmmaker Jeremy Gilley. In 1998 he decided to get national leaders to commit to a cessation of hostilities for at least one designated day each year. He discovered that there already was an international "Peace Day" but its date was not fixed and very few knew of its existence. Its observance was ignored.
