FENASOL declares mass civil disobedience on August 4

The National Federation of Employees’ and Workers’ Unions in Lebanon (FENASOL) declared in a statement that it will launch a comprehensive civil disobedience throughout the country in August 4.

The statement said: “We had the honor to announce, prepare and launch for this day with all forces of real democratic change in the October 17 uprising.”

FENASOL greeted its President, Castro Abdallah, who raised the voice and called for disobedience because it is the sole option to bring them down and hold them accountable in the street. “Let August 4 be the popular force that will bring them down, lift their immunities and bring them before the Lebanese judiciary.”

The statement called for “intense participation in the popular movement that the union along with the civil society associations and independent syndicates called for in Beirut and across all regions.

“In honor of the martyrs of the catastrophic explosion in the port of Beirut and standing by the families of the martyrs and their cause, let us bring down this sectarian system that has brought us calamities, disasters, impoverishment, starvation and death,” the statement added.

Protests will gather at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, August 4, in front of Saint Georges and will march passing through Martyrs Square and Gemayzeh Street and then heading towards the Parliament.
