Syrian Groups in Bulgaria
(continued from Divided, Depleted and Dispirited - The Syrians of Bulgaria)
Association of Syrians in Bulgaria
Set up in the 1990s, initially for cultural purposes, with ties to the Syrian regime. Many Syrians left it when the protests began.
Free Syria Association
The first group to unite opponents of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad appeared months after the uprising began in March 2011. It seeks to raise awareness about developments in Syria.
Syrian Democratic League
Founded by a group of regime opponents at the end of 2014 after splintering off from the FSA. Prefers to work with refugees, rather than voice political positions on Syria's future.
