    Thugs Run Hamra Street

    Click to watch the attack on peaceful protesters in Hamra Street

    A group of peaceful civil society activists, organizing a vigil in solidarity with the people of Syria, next to the Syrian embassy on Hamra Street, Beirut, were violently attacked Tuesday night (August 2nd 2011) by a gang of Lebanese Syrian Social Nationalist Party militants, armed with knives, bats and whips.

    Demanding swift police and judiciary action to put an end to such criminal acts will most likely be ignored by Lebanese authorities, who have not shown so far any modicum of courage to defend Lebanon’s sovereigny and rule of law against militias.

    We have a dream that one day Lebanon’s sovereignty will extend to… Hamra Street.
