VIDEO: Syrian protests rage against Assad -- Arab Summer in full swing?

This video shows images of protests in Syria, captured by a foreign journalist who managed to gain rare access inside the country. CBC News has agreed not to identify him because he fears for his safety.

Many of the activists he profiles in this piece also want their identities protected, for the same reason. They are on the front lines of the effort to topple President Bashar al-Assad's regime.

Note: Because of rights issues, this video is restricted to views from inside Canada only. (watch video here)
