The artist Banksy and actor Idris Elba have teamed up to bring attention to the ongoing conflict in Syria.

As we approach the the 15th of March 2014, we also approach the third anniversary of this bloody conflict in Syria. The #WithSyria campaign will launch in 35 countries amassing a popular movement with those caught in the conflict.

In the animated short Banky's iconic 'Girl with the Red Balloon' is lifted above the conflict. Elba's voice narrates the video as disturbing facts and provoking messages about the conflict in Syria are displayed.

The video and campaigns were made with the hopes that the people of Syria will not lose another year to conflict and bloodshed. Visit the campaign page and show your support. Stats for War-Torn Animated Films Trending: This Year & Warm
