Several thousand miles, two kids, and an unfinished dissertation prevent me from attending the secularism walk scheduled for this Sunday in Beirut. But that won’t stop me from guilting the rest of you into going, assuming that you’re in Lebanon and aren’t hung over from Saturday night partying in Gemmayzeh (where, I hear, Syria will soon be building a nuclear weapons plant. Groovy.)
So anyway, here’s the info. The march will begin in Ain Mreisseh, in front of the Abdel Nasser statue at 11AM on Sunday morning, proceeding from there (presumably downtown).
There’s also a graffiti campaign planned (including a Maya Zankoul creation designed for the Qifa Nabki blog, to be unveiled somewhere on Bliss Street), and demonstrations planned at Lebanese embassies and consulates worldwide. So get out there and make your voices heard!
