Anniversary Demonstrations in Lebanon

This item comes from Farid:

Washington DC - February 14, 2007/RPS/ -- On the 2nd anniversary of the killing of Rafik Hariri, dubbed the Valentine massacre, hundreds of thousands of Lebanese descended upon the Freedom Square in downtown Beirut to listen to Lebanese politicians, in the most direct speeches ever, accuse Syria.

Speakers like Depute Walid Jumblatt and head of the Druze community, who behind a bullet-proof pulpit, delivered one of his most passionate speeches ever. Jumblatt ended his speech by insisting that the international tribunal will bring equality, justice, and hanging.
