Hello, Lebanon. It’s me, your friendly Green Patriot. On March 8th, 2014, the demonstration in support for legal protection from domestic violence will occur from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm, starting from Madhaf to the Palace of Justice. My fellow Lebanese, we must back this initiative in support of our mothers, sisters, friends–of ourselves, for that matter. Indeed, for the improvement of our society, we must push for the protection of Lebanese women. We pride ourselves on being the most socially advanced in the Arab world, yet think of the women who have been brutally murdered by their husbands recently: Christelle Abou Chakra, Manal Assi, Fatima Bakkour, and Roula Yaacoub. The law failed to protect them. It is up to us to push for the protection of our rights, our bodies, and our safety. We can do it, Lebanon!!!
