Are you on with someone? Agency, Outlet etc? Do you have experience with this sort of situation? Do you have money? Before you dismiss these questions, keep in mind very few people who CAN help you are going to without asking these.
The FSA in Antakya are charging and the crew responsible for organizing this all have working mobiles and they have been working for sometime. They are an organized group, well connected and constantly in touch.
There are people who can help you but most aren’t going to do it if you are on a fishing expedition with nobody waiting for work. It is not about newcomers, turf or anything like that so don’t bother with that lecture. it is a FUCKING dangerous endeavour and you are not making choices that effect you alone. All the folks involved in getting you where you want to be are putting their lives on the line too. Please think long and hard about risking their lives if you have nothing negotiated.
It is also a bit of a dicey endeavour trying to sort it on a very public forum like this. As R mentioned, it is a very, very dangerous place in there. Find someone who has been in and out, has had work run and send them a note. Asking on here is not going to get you the playback in a return post.
Humphrey is providing you with very good info. Get on a bus and head down to the camp in Yeladagi.
They situation you are describing in your original post smells like serious trouble to me. I know you want in but I would sever that relationship immediately.
my two cents. good luck.
