CIVIL SOCIETY GROUPS PARTAKE IN PARADE CELEBRATING INDEPENDENCE DAY AT BEIRUT PORT

Marking Lebanon’s 78th Independence anniversary, the "Civil Parade" activities set out this evening from the Karantina area towards Beirut Port under the slogan, "People, Army, Judiciary", with the heavy participation of civil society groups and "October 17 Revolutionaries".

The rows of participants extended to the Dora area, while the sides of the road witnessed crowds of citizens who came to attend the parade.

Participants raised banners calling for "realizing real independence, fighting corruption and theft of public money, reaching the civil state, and holding those responsible for the August 4 explosion accountable."

Professionals from various fields and sectors took part in the activities, alongside a number of artists and intellectual and social figures, as they all raised Lebanese flags and army banners.
