East Aleppo, once part of a culturally vibrant metropolis, is now "one giant graveyard," as Russian and Syrian government forces launch an aggressive offensive against the rebel stronghold. 

Activists in Berlin want the world to pay attention. 

The group have planned out a "civil march" from Berlin to Aleppo in protest of the horrific massacre the city has witnessed over the past few years. 

Around 3,000 volunteers have already signed up to take part in the 3,000 kilometer walk, which is expected to take place on December 26. 

The journey is set to start from Germany through to the Czech Republic, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Macedonia, Greece and Turkey, to Aleppo.

Anna Alboth, a Polish journalist came up with the initiative and emphasizes that the campaign is not affiliated to any political party or organization. 

"We are just random Europeans who have had enough," Alboth said, according to AlAraby

"Our main aim, or our main dream, is that what is happening in Aleppo should be over, so that the civilians have access to humanitarian help," she added.

The participants will carry white flags throughout the journey.

For anyone joining the walk for more than one day, the organization has mapped out a list of items each and every participant is advised to pack for the journey, including gloves, jackets, pants, water among other things. 

Some have referred to the walk as "suicidal civil march"

This is why they're #GoingToAleppo

This is why Joana is #GoingToAleppo: 

"I decided that I'm #goingToAleppobecause when I read the newspapers, watch TV and scroll on social media this is not the world I want for my daughter. Children’s hospitals being attacked; premature babies being taken away by nurses crying; families apart; refugees arriving and living in camps for endless years; parents without their sons and daughters, children without their parents; lost generations.

I’m pretty sure the great majority of the world population, everyday people and normal citizens, feel that what is happening in Syria is a crime against Humanity, a crime against every single one of us as a Human. So, if we really are the majority why can’t we stop it? I think we can." 

Aleppo has been the epicenter of the Syrian civil war, which is currently in its sixth year. 

The city could witness the "biggest massacre" since the World War II, a UN diplomat warns. 

"France and its partners cannot remain silent in the face of what could be one of the biggest massacres of civilian population since World War II," warned Francois Delattre, French UN ambassador, ahead of a UN Security Council meeting in New York, according to The Independent.

400,000 civilians have died since the start of the Syrian civil war.
