WCCR Statement on the Anniversary of PM Rafik Hariri's Assassination

The World Council of the Cedars Revolution today pays our respect to Lebanon’s 5-Time Prime Minister Rafik Hariri and 22 others that perished on the 14th of February 2005. Also, for those that have fallen before and after Rafik Hariri for the sake of the Country of Lebanon – for its Sovereignty, Freedom and Independence. This fight is not over, Egypt has proven that people will inevitably pursue their inalienable right to live free; free of Assassinations, Intimidations, Threats, Coercion, corruption and heavy handed politics. Lebanon must be free of these so that each Lebanese may determine their destiny.

Because of each individuals desires to their inalienable rights to freedom, The Cedars Revolution will never go away; the majority of Lebanese in Lebanon and the Diaspora continue to demand the truth for those that were martyred and for Justice to be served to the Assassins.

The STL is here, and it cannot be circumvented, it will provide the truth and it will stop the impunity for political assassinations. Justice must be upheld for Lebanon to exist.

We state clearly that Lebanon is part of the nations of the United Nations and its commitment to the Security Council resolutions is an obligation as well as a solution to Lebanon’s own problems. Thus we demand a full implementation of all UNSCR’s – especially 1559, 1680, 1701 and 1757.

The March 14 movement made statements today in Lebanon and we concur with the following:

The WCCR was pleased to hear the leaders of March 14t stated the following:

1)      That they committed mistakes in the past 6 years

2)      That they’ve held a lot of talks, but no return to any negotiation with the side who is armed, a side proposing terrorism and corruption

3)      The STL is the only answer

4)      UNSCR’s 1559,1680,1701, 1757 are the solutions to Lebanon

5)      We were also quite pleased to see March 14th, after a long 5 years, to invite Moderate Shiites who are anti-Hezbollah into the March 14 group. Today M14 introduced Shi’ite Mohamad Youssef Beidoun and his speech was well accepted.

Lebanon must have one Government, one free democratic process, and one army.
