Guardians of the Cedars - National Lebanese Movement
Communiqué

The following actions of the new Hariri government are de facto confessions of incompetence, irresponsibility, and submission to Syria:

The Guardians of the Cedars consider that the politics of the Hariri government is harmful and will lead to a deterioration of the actual, precarious situation of "facts on the ground." Only after the Lebanese are "masters of their own home" will economic growth occur, along with confidence in the Lebanese economy.

Security of Lebanon should be guaranteed by a Lebanese army that is representative of Lebanese unity and not a Lebanese Army that is used as a tool of repression against the Lebanese population.

The politics of the Hariri government is a continuation of pro-Syrian politics practiced since 1975, having one goal : enslaving Lebanon and its people.
