|The Guardians of the Cedar's first tour|
Our first tour this year was to the South of Lebanon. We chose this place to start with for two main reasons:
First, we wanted the new members of the party to get better acquainted with the native village (Ain Ebel) and home of our commander, Abu Arz, and to pay tribute to our martyrs.
Second, it was among our obligations to carry out the request of the southerners (as we have been doing it for 5 years now), who pleaded for moral support and empathy ever since they have been victims from traumatic and menacing acts after the collapse of the region in May 23 rd 2000 .
In Marjaayoun- Koleia, we shared lunch with other members of the party and some villagers. Unfortunately, we won't publish the pictures for their own security.
The message of Abu Arz we passed on all the way was, “I will never rest before securing the homecoming and rights of the southerners and every single Lebanese, with honor and dignity”…
(The Cedar tree that our commander planted is behind us. When I checked on it in June 2000, its length was less than the half of what it is today)…
Next tour Ciza Calla rad will be at the Cedars' forest in the Cedars itself.
