We want a government now. Get ready for Sit In: Downtown Beirut, Thursday Feb. 3 until government is formed!

Posted on: February 1, 2011

Get ready for Thursday Feb. 3 afternoon: Downtown Beirut.  There is a sit in mass popular demonstration until a government is formed. Bring in the tents, sleeping bags, and backpack.  Bring in all your family members:  We will party as a united people: We want a government now!

Lebanon is not Iraq:  We have no foreign troops on our lands.  We don’t have to wait months for every new designated Prime Minister to constitute a government.   Last time, the ex-PM Saad Hariri who was fired two weeks ago lingered 6 months before presenting a government that produced not a single promise.

Maybe the Lebanese are used to function without a government, but this should no longer be the norm.

We have no Israeli, Syrian, US troops, or “multinational coalition forces” to impose peace and security on our land.  The Lebanese Resistance kicked out Israel from the south in 2000  and defeated Israel preemptive incursion in 2006.  The Syrian troops and intelligence services had vacated the land in 2005.  We have no reason to bow and accept this recurring humiliating scenarios of waiting for months for the formation of a government.

We have 19 “recognized religious sects”.  So what!  We have great people in every sect to represent all Lebanese and work consciously for the interest of a democratic and independent Lebanon. Let Mikati PM select 19 hard-working, professional, honest ministers from the various sects.  We don’t need superfluous “Super Ministers” with no ministry to run or jobs to do!  We want a government now.

We don’t want to be waiting for the International Court for Lebanon to present its preliminary indictments in order to form a responsible government.  What is the job of a government except preempting coming calamities? We resent that Lebanon has been under UN mandated power for the last 5 years; we refuse to keep waiting for every events and trouble in the region to be solved before we get on with business.

The Egyptians and Tunisians revolted and got organized without the help and guidance of any political party.  We, the Lebanese, don’t need to be waiting for every feudal and sectarian “leader” to give us any damned green light to get on the march and moving toward serious reforms.  We want a bold and functional government now.

Come down to Downtown Beirut and be counted. Bring in the tents, sleeping bags, and backpack.  Bring in all your family members:  We will party as a united people: We want a government now! We will not leave until a government is formed.  Our lame leaders are not as stupid and mule-minded as Mubarak of Egypt is.  We, the Lebanese, have demonstrated that we can be as determined and united as the great people of Egypt.

Guys, we have a large window of opportunity to send a firm message: “This vicious cycles of spending months catering to every whim of every feudal, sectarian, and cartel party leader is no longer appetizing to our palate.  We are hungry, frustrated, and angrier than a wasp.  Lebanon political structure is to be reformed, and this is as good a time as ever.”

Bring in the tents, sleeping bags, and backpack.  Bring in all your family members:  We will party as a united people: We want a government now!
