It's bigger than a bread basket.

I feel like I've been assigned reading.
Shouldn't you have to say something when you start a thread?

The link goes to the BBC. I have never been a fan of their pandering to Islam, so I haven't watched.

That would be ideal. As a matter of fact there was a poster here not long ago that considered himself a news feed and got banned for it.

Yeah, and he's just been replaced with another poster whose name begins with "J" and ends in "anfu."

C'mon. Gimme a hint...

It's bigger than a bread basket.

My apologies: the videos are the story and interviews of the young journalists who recorded the reality of life in Raqqa once ISIS took over; how they filmed and tried to show what was really happening and then it records the brutality of the deaths of some of the activists - finally finishing with the 5 remaining survivors and their continuing roles in opposing ISIS / Daesh.

I found it powerful, their own words describe the grim dangers and reality they face as ISIS try to find them and stop the hidden activists who are still in Raqqa. Finally it finishes with how they are training new activists in Mosul to spread the work.
Incredibly brave - and they are just teenagers or just out of their teens and living in hiding.
