"Manifestantes prosirios se reúnen en el centro de Beirut para mostrar su
apoyo a Damasco
Como resultado de un llamamiento nacional de la dirección de Hezbollah para
una demostración pro siria, un millón y medio de libaneses se reunieron en
una plaza del centro de Beirut para contrarrestar semanas de masivos actos
exigiendo el retiro de las fuerzas sirias del Líbano. Desde los
altoparlantes se emitían canciones de resistencia mientras los organizadores
hacían flamear banderas libanesas y organizaban a hombres y mujeres en
sectores separados de la plaza. Los guardias de Hezbollah tuvieron en sus
manos la seguridad, cerrando el perímetro de la plaza y formando piquete,
mientras perros entrenados olfateaban buscando alguna bomba"

1.5 Million pro-Syria demonstrators gather in Beirut
3/8/2005 2:00:00 PM GMT
Large cranes hoisted two giant white and red flags bearing Lebanon's cedar
tree. On one, the words "Thank you Syria" were written in English; on the
other, "No to foreign interference."
Hezbollah has been mobilizing its followers from across the country for the
protest which is also meant to denounce a UN resolution which in addition to
its demand for Syrian withdrawal calls for the dismantling of groups - a
point which Hezbollah sees as being aimed at its well-armed military wing.
Previously, Hezbollah warned that disorder could erupt in Lebanon if Syrian
troops were to leave the country, where the 15-year-long civil war ended
with a fragile balance between the country's diverse main religious groups.
General elections in Lebanon are due to be held in May.
Hezbollah, one of the most widely popular and highly respected groups in the
country and in the region, was a major factor in driving out the Israeli
troops from southern Lebanon in 2000.
Furthermore, it has joined mainstream politics with nine members of the
group in the current legislature while social and educational work across
Shiite parts of the country have been undertaken by the group which also
owns medical clinics, a newspaper and a TV station.
The party remained mostly neutral since anti-Syrian protests took place in
Lebanon last month. But last Sunday, the group threw its weight behind Syria
and its allies and called for massive rallies in Beirut to show loyalty to
Although Hezbollah is backed in part by Syria, the opposition had been
courting the group's support in its efforts to oust Syrian troops.
The leader of Hezbollah Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah called for the massive
peaceful demonstration to be held on Tuesday in central Beirut, saying the
protest is to denounce international interference, show support for
resistance movements and foil any attempts to make a peace deal with Israel.
Nasrallah has also rejected the UN Security Council resolution sponsored by
both France and the U.S. which calls for Syrian withdrawal from Lebanon to
be accompanied by the disarming of all groups within the country.
The Hezbollah leader has made it clear the group will not disarm - a
position he repeated on Sunday. "As long as Lebanon needs protection, it
needs the resistance," he said.
According to a Lebanese security source, Syrian troops have begun
redeploying to eastern Lebanon Tuesday in the first stage of a two-phased
withdrawal from the country.
However, the source did not say which positions were being vacated but
according to witness accounts there have been several troop movements in a
mountainous ridge east of Beirut.
The move began after a joint Syrian-Lebanese military committee agreed on
the details at a meeting in Damascus.
Earlier in Damascus, a Syrian official source said Syria would pull its
security and intelligence personnel out of Lebanon along with its troops.
The source gave no timetable for the second phase of the pullout, but said:
"This doesn't mean it won't be soon."
