While the world has turned its attention to Crimea and the missing Malaysian Airlines plane, Syria is still in tatters. The civil war there is still active, and to date, 146,000 people have been killed in the conflict, which is three years old as of Saturday, March 15th.

Banksy, the world's most famous anonymous artist, projected this powerful animation on the wall of a Moscow gallery to remind the world that Syria still badly needs our help.

The choice of Moscow for the rollout of this artwork is no accident: Russia has been the Assad regime's most powerful supporter, and has been the dominant force keeping the dictator in power.

The #WithSyria hashtag has been very active since the screening.

You can donate to support Syrian refugees at the United Nations Refugee Agency.
