Cabinet resigns, and president to address Syrians today or tomorrow.

Mass pro-regime rallies in Damascus and Aleppo, amid reports of civil servants being threatened and intimidated into showing up, and schoolchildren being bused in to join.

From Aljazeera English:

Bashar al-Assad, the Syrian president, has accepted the resignation of the country’s government, following two weeks of anti-government protests that have gripped Syria.

“President Assad accepts the government’s resignation,” an announcement on state television said on Tuesday.

But the move was unlikely to satisfy protester demands since the cabinet has little authority in Syria, where power is concentrated in the hands of Assad, his family and the security apparatus.
Employees and members of unions controlled by Assad’s Baath Party, which has been in power since a 1963 coup, said they had been ordered to attend the rallies, where there was a heavy presence of security police.
Media organizations operate in Syria under restrictions. The government has expelled three Reuters journalists in recent days — its senior foreign correspondent in Damascus and then a two-man television crew who were detained for two days before being deported back to their home base in neighboring Lebanon.
