BASHIR GEMAYEL COMMEMORATION MASS TURNS INTO LF AND KATAEB DEMO
September 15, 2000 10:33 AM
The mass held for the commemoration of the 18th anniversary of President Bashir Gemayel's assassination turned to a ceremony in which Kataeb and Lebanese Forces supporters expressed their anger and dismay over the current political situation in the country.
It was the first time since the assassination of Gemayel that a commemoration mass turns into a human demonstration that shows the frustration of thousands of supporters demanding the liberation of dismantled LF leader Samir Geagea.
Outside the Church of Our Lady of Miracles in Ashrafieh, a 4000-strong crowd denounced the Syrian presence in Lebanon.
In her speech, Solange Gemayel, wife of the late president, strongly criticized the electoral law, arguing that many Christian groups feel they were dropped out of political life.
"We refuse that our role, or any other role in the country, be ostracized", she said.
Gemayel lashed out at the Lebanese Broadcasting Corporation, "the station that Bashir founded" for failing to cover commemoration masses for 18 years.
Attended the mass members of the Gemayel family, including former President Amine Gemayel, who returned home from France a few weeks ago after a ten-year exile, newly elected MP, Pierre Amine Gemayel, and a large number of officials and representatives of the president of the republic, the prime minister and the house speaker.
