Carole Kerbage, a former reporter with the now-closed As-Safir newspaper and one of the organizers of the newly formed journalists' group, dubbed the Alternative Journalists Syndicate, said the initiative had started with a group of journalists from different outlets who were initially participating individually in the protests.Discussions are still ongoing as to whether the journalists' group will attempt to push for reforms to the existing syndicate or to form a new one.
