Syria constitution 2012 2 27

Syrian flags are waved as people take to the streets after voting on a new constitution that could end five decades of single-party domination, in the capital Damascus, on February 26, 2012, although the opposition has called a boycott as the regime's bloody crackdown shows no sign of easing.
