The unifying slogan al-sha'ab al-sha'ab yuri'd isqat
al-nizam ('the people want to overthrow the regime') has for the first time, since the 1950s, powerfully captured the imagination of the people in the MENA region.
People of Kafranbel in the square of freedom and their voices are calling: Asha'b yourid isqat
al-nithaam [the people want the fall of the regime- a political slogan related to the Arab spring].
Mehdi had piled together a bunch of stones on a rock slab, and carefully climbed on top, egging Younes and Amal to repeat the slogans he heard in the square urging the dictator to leave: "Irrrrrhal!!" which they parroted with matching fervor, "Irrrrrhal!" They waited eagerly for the next slogan, so Mehdi pumped his fist high above his head and shouted, " As-shab -- yurid -- isqat
— an-nizam !" Delighted with their echo, he said once more with gusto, "The people -- want -- the fall of -- the regime!"
According to the Syrian Arabic-language al-Watan newspaper, Tahrir al-Sham has detained the ISIL terrorists in Idlib city and the towns of al-Nayrab, Sarmin, al-Dana, Salqayn, Harem, Isqat
, Basnia, Qorqania and Hattan.

Some students wrote on a wall the slogan that was then appearing in other countries of the Arab Spring: Ash-sha 'b yurid isqat
an-nizam ("The people demand the removal of the regime!").

At one point, larger groups within the crowd began to advance towards Tahrir while chanting ash-shab yurid isqat
an-nizam (the people want to bring down the regime), a slogan that first emerged during the Tunisian revolution and that quickly become one of the most popular mottos of the January 25 revolution in Egypt.
In March 2011, namely when the young boys of Dar painted graffiti on the walls of the city reading "Ash-shab yurid isqat
an-nizam!" (The people want to topple the regime!), we all understood that the Arab Awakening was about to impact Syria.
As he sees it, the famous slogan from the Arab Spring, "ash-sha'b yurid isqat
, an-nizam" (the people want to topple the regime), is a metaphor for overthrowing both dictators and conceptual categories, as well as the political terminology and intellectual frames of reference that are fundamentally Eurocentric in nature and the byproduct of a colonial mindset.
Mixing disturbing cell-phone footage of the Syrian army's brutality with talking heads of refugees who've fled to Turkey, "Isqat
al Nizam--at the Regime Border" is a powerful record of Syria's continuing nightmare.
The Syrian rebel slogan for the week reported by the pan-Arab media on July 13-14 was: "Isqat
Kofi Annan Khadem Russiya wa Iran" (down with Kofi Annan the servant of Russia and Iran).
