In February, People & Power investigated the horrifying consequences for civilians under Russian air strikes in Syria. Watch and share your views below.

"In Aleppo, the largest city in Syria, people still go to work, send their children to school, and eat in the many restaurants lining the streets, but at any minute they could be killed by the seemingly arbitrary Russian and Syrian regime strikes."

"Children accused of a crime in Sierra Leone have no right to due process, despite the country having ratified various international treaties that guarantee such protections. As a result, they are often considered guilty until proved innocent, with detention being the first resort for all offences, regardless of their nature."
Child inmates are left to languish in prison with no visitors or legal assistance as many wait years for a trial.

"Since civil war erupted in Syria five years ago, millions of refugees have sought safe harbor in Europe by land and by sea, through Turkey and across the Mediterranean. Refugees crossed these same passageways 70 years ago. But they were not Syrians and they traveled in the opposite direction."
A rare collection of refugee camp reports chronicle journeys through Turkey and across the Mediterranean by refugees trying to leave Europe.

"For missions of four to eight weeks, management at Houston believed the crews should be pampered, and good food was one way to make long missions tolerable — or perhaps more accurately, bad food was a sure way to make them intolerable."
The United States' first space station faced many challenges — most of all, making the astronaut food tolerable.

It wouldn't be right for this topic, but does anyone analyse why the Syrian government would bomb hospitals and mosques? What's the tactical reason. Or why the rebels don't just surrender for peace?

The Stream is a social media community with its own daily TV show on Al Jazeera English.
Introduction
The Stream is a new phenomenon – a web community with its own daily show on Al Jazeera. The Stream taps into the extraordinary potential of the increasing power of social networks to disseminate news. Individuals have now become an integral part of the news information network through their ability to publish information and share opinions on events as they take place. 

The viral nature of social networks allows for such information to spread and multiply rapidly. While these developments have the potential to generate more heat than light, to a broadcaster like Al Jazeera, they are also a huge opportunity to reach news in places and at levels until now impossible. 

The Stream is a super-aggregator of these online sources, seeking out both untold stories and new, ground level takes on stories in the mainstream.
