A Syrian activist, Zaidoun, was detained by secret police in Syria along with his younger brother, according to his family. He risked his safety many times to speak out on AC360° in order to expose the massacre in the country. Zaidoun also talked of the importance of justice and freedom. In one interview, he told Anderson Cooper,"This is our chance of life to get our freedom. We've been dreaming of this moment for the past 40 years."
Zaidoun's family created a Facebook page for supporters.
