A demonstration will be held on Wednesday 28 at 3 pm in front of the
ESCWA building in Down Town Beirut to support and call for the release of
Lebanese in Syrian jails. This demonstration is not backed by a political
leader(s). It is a civic demand all Lebanese should respond to as those
prisoners, who are numbered in hundreds, belong to all walks of life,
faiths, genders and ages. Neither the Lebanese government nor the
international community is taking a firm stance or actions regarding this
file, which has been open for decades.
The only tool in the hands of the families backed by the S.O.L.I.D.E NGO
is the media, which will undoubtedly increase pressure on the Lebanese
government to take some actions.
The more people show up the more media coverage the protest will have.
Come as a Lebanese for the Lebanese and for a cause, which really unites us.

Wish I could be there Delirious.

I am afraid though that without "offensive" cartoons, and without a Bush effigy to burn, maybe 3 people will show up.

Also why ESCWA? Why not our Prez or PM? Better yet the home or office of that idiot boot-licker Khoury who heads the Syrian-Lebanese Committee.

Please let us us know how it went.
