March 14 Rejects Foreign Influence, Calls Partisans to Chant for Lebanon on Saturday

March 14 Rejects Foreign Influence, Calls Partisans to Chant for Lebanon on Saturday

The March 14 majority alliance on Wednesday said it would not permit "external infiltration into our national-political life" and said the Lebanese people would reaffirm allegiance to the nation and support for justice on the fourth anniversary of ex-Premier Rafik Hariri's killing.

The alliance, in a statement released after a meeting by its leaders, said "they" wanted Feb. 14, 2005, the day Hariri was assassinated, to be "a day marking state death."

"But you wanted it a day for the nation's renaissance," said the statement recited by MP Butros Harb.

"It was followed by the unprecedented civil independence movement in the Middle East, the March 14 movement," the statement added.

It said the international tribunal that would start operating on March 1st would be "an historic event that would safeguard justice and move criminals closer to justice."

"The 14th of February is a day to renew allegiance to Lebanon and loyalty to the martyrs' blood; a day to declare support for the truth, justice and the international tribunal," it said.

"We call you to stream to Martyrs Square to commemorate the event. Together we will be at … Freedom Square to chant for Lebanon, wave the flag, declare commitment to our national independent decision and reject all forms of external infiltration into our national-political life," the statement concluded.
