Democrats of the World, Unite

One of the great figures in the victory of freedom in East-Central Europe, Vaclav Havel, sends his greetings to the supporters of democracy in Lebanon:

Dear participants,
Dear friends,

Let me convey my greetings, solidarity and support to all of you who are pursuing, by peaceful and democratic means, goals similar to the ones that we in Central Europe set ourselves more than fifteen years ago: the path of freedom and independence, complete withdrawal of the occupying troops and renewal of the democratic system. What we consider important is that all this was achieved by peaceful demonstrations; by open, quiet but firm civic resistance.

Please read the rest.
