All are invited to stand in solidarity with the people of Lebanon that WANT FUNDAMENTAL CHANGE TO ADVANCE DEMOCRACY AND FIGHT CORRUPTION IN Lebanese government and politics.

The media has a crucial role in supporting social movements TO PROMOTE THE CANADIAN VALUES OF DEMOCRACY AND SHARED PROSPERITY. We are not asking for coverage of the event/protest only, we want coverage to our message. Our message tomorrow is clear: “We as Canadian Lebanese want a secular DEMOCRATIC government. We WANT TO ELIMINATE CORRUPTION
We want a better economy, jobs, electricity, better healthcare system for Lebanon TO REMAIN A STRONG FRIEND AND ECONOMIC PARTNER TO CANADA BASED ON A LONG HISTORY OF SHARED CONNECTIONS.
We are standing in solidarity with the people in Lebanon #OneLebanon
