Free Samir Geagea

Today a mass was held at the local church by local Lebanese Forces members. The turn out wasn't bad but we were expecting a lot more. I guess the fact that the mass was planned a day earlier might have played a roll in this. The mass was given the name "Waiting for you" and was held in the name of the Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea who had been wrongfully imprisoned for 11 years now. He was imprisoned because he refused to betray his people and his country. With the recent Freedom 05 campaign going on in Lebanon, a call for his release has been renewed and is currently being aggressively fought for in Lebanon. If the activities continue the way they are, he should be released hopefully before the end of the month. For more information you can visit

Hi Mark,
I agree with you that Geagea should be out by now, and its true he refused to go along in the stealing stream that hit the country after 1991. But he has a bad history and activities from 1975 to 1991. And remember, the last time Geagea and Aoun were out, they knocked the shit out of the country and each other. Let's hope they have grown up this time or at least the people who support them. After all we want a better Lebanon not the return of Aoun and Geagea only.

Sorry Fadi but you have your facts way wrong.

Samir Geagea couldn't have had a bad history from 1975 till 1991 because he only took control in 1985.

Secondly, Aoun is the one who declared war on the Lebanese Forces and Samir Geagea and not the other way around.

So if you are misinformed please keep it to yourself instead of trying to spread incorrect facts.

I was born and raised in Ain El Roumaneh and lived there from 1975 till 1997. Living in it is not like listening to the stories. Regardless of what you believe in, which I have to respect, and won't even try to ask you to change. Samir Geagea studied in Ain El Roumaneh and later fought in it and rose to power from it. The rise to power came at a price, and in Lebanon for most of the war, the price was mostly blood.
