4 young Syrian women who staged a women’s march against violence dressed in wedding dresses are now in jail.

The 'Brides of Peace' marched through the middle of Medhat Basha market in Damascus, Syria carrying red banners with white lettering that read 'Stop all military operations in Syria. 100% Syrian.'

But Rima Dali, Rowa Jafar, and sisters Kinda and Lobna Zaour were immediately detained and denied due process by Syrian security forces last week.

Footage of their march was put out immediately by Freedom Days Syria, an umbrella organization coordinating over a dozen nonviolent resistance groups inside Syria, reported Fellowship of Reconciliation.

Their imprisonment has caused a massive surge of support for the activists and women from across the world posed for photos of themselves dressed in white gowns holding red and white signs that reflect the message of the 'Brides of Peace.'
