In response to the atrocities committed in Lebanon during the July War of 2006, concerned Lebanese-Americans of Greater Boston have lead a series of peaceful demonstrations and candlelight vigils at Copley Square in Boston under the Justice for Lebanon banner. Those grassroots events were a few of many organized across the U.S. and worldwide.

In solidarity with the people of Lebanon, we strongly supported the Lebanese Government in:

Denouncing the Israeli Militaryís killing of innocent Lebanese civilians, devastation of Lebanonís infrastructure, and terrorizing its entire population

Demanding an immediate and unconditional ceasefire to end all hostilities and halt the maritime and air siege imposed by Israel on Lebanon
