Akkar syndicates call for strike in support of Hariri, STL

Share:

National News Agency (NNA) reported on Monday that The educational, social and syndicate bodies in the Akkar of north Lebanon issued a statement calling for a general strike in the area on Tuesday,

The statement called for protests in the Abdeh Square at the southern entrance of the Akkar district at 10 a.m. on Tuesday to support caretaker Prime Minister Saad Hariri and the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL).

Protests broke out across Lebanon on Monday following the first day of the premiership consultations after Hezbollah engineered what was branded by Future Movement as a ” coup” to control the next Lebanese government .

Hezbollah appeared to have secured the support from a majority of parliament Monday to nominate its candidate former PM Najib Mikati for prime minister, putting the Iranian and Syrian-backed militant group in position to control Lebanon.

A coup

The Future Movement, which is headed by Hariri accused Hezbollah on Monday of staging a coup and called for peaceful protests across the country.

“A coup aimed at imposing Hezbollah as the supreme leader of the Lebanese republic and its government… is a coup aimed at installing the Wilayat al Faqih rule [Guardianship of the Jurist],” Future Movement official Mustafa Allouch said, referring to the political system of clerical rule instituted in Iran.

Allouch also called for a series of peaceful protests on Tuesday against Hezbollah across Lebanon.

Day of Rage

Sunni leaders have called for a “day of rage” throughout Lebanon Tuesday to protest gains by the Iranian and Syrian backed Shiite militant group Hezbollah.

Khaled Daher a March 14 MP said: “We call on those who reject the Persian scheme in this defiant Arab country to stage a sit-in tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. at the al-Nour Square in Tripoli.”

Daher slammed Hezbollah, saying that the party’s weapons are “the arms of treason that threaten all the Lebanese people.”

      Mr PHD NOT
      Who is robbing who? don’t you always call for Lebanese to abide by he constitution and democratic rules?
      What you see is democracy at its best. Alliances shifting, majority is lost by one group,gained by others. I just hope they don’t try this unity government experience again.
      In democracy , No one owns or inherits a job; you earn it.and you don’t get it as price of blood.
      if this government is formed, Lebanon may get rid of sectarian religious institutions control of who represent the sects at the highest three offices of the state.
      First it was the Christians who lost it by not choosing the strongest Christan leader to the office of the president
      Second, The Muftee may not decide for Lebanese who the Sunni prime minster is
      And hopefully, The shiia religious leadership won’t be able to impose their choice on all Lebanese to the office of the speaker of the parliament..
      As bad as it may seem, this could be the best thing that happened to the Lebanese political system and culture.

        The president won’t sign anything but a unity government, unless of course, the Syrians say otherwise. The Syrians want a unity government to keep the balance. The last thing they will seek is a country controlled by Iran. It is dangerous for them because they are negotiating with Israel as we speak. Hezbollah for them is leverage. When their role is done with they will wipe them out like they did with the leftists during the civil war. Stop dreaming of a free Lebanon folks. It will never happen unless we shed all the religions OR one sect prevails.

        1. Yes Hannibal, according to what I see this morning is the president will not sign on any government that does not represent all of the Lebanese. I think March14 should participate in the government and if they disagree with Mikati, they can do the same thing that March8 did to Hariri.
          Mikati should form a government of minsters with political association. That might be hard to find such people in Lebanon. Better yet JUST APPOINT AOUN AS A DICTATOR ……

          hannibal,
          I ‘m not too sure a government can be formed anyway.
          No sect can or should prevail in Lebanon.
          The only solution is getting rid of sectarianism .
          I’m not as fearful as you are of Iran’s control of Lebanon.

    So here is a summary:
    1943: Lebanon was born
    1958: Sunnis wanted to join Naserite movement ending in la ghaaleb wala maghluub
    1975: Civil War Christians against Moslems and the PLO, Israel purges the PLO out, Syrians take the country, Christians marginalized
    2005: Cedar revolution following the assassination of Hariri – Syrians leave Lebanon
    2011: Shia – Sunni struggle over controlling Lebanon – civil strife – may be civil war
    2012: The Syrians back in Lebanon to control Hezbollah – Syrians take the country

    Lesson? Spare the blood and JUST invite the Syrians back… After all we are known for our hospitality… lol
