People from across Lebanon are invited to join a candlelight vigil to remember all the victims of the collapsed building in Achrafieh, and especially those who were not paid proper respects because they were not Lebanese.
The vigil, located in Fassouh area next to the site of the incident at 6:30pm on Wednesday January 25, is being held to remember people who died because of negligence, and those who have been discriminated against by our racist community, even at desperate moments like these and after their horrifying deaths.
Everyone is welcome to join the ceremony by taking along a torch or a candle that can be lit in memory of those who have died or in support of those who are still suffering from injuries.
This event is about raising awareness of the issue, as well as letting victims – and their families – know we are thinking of them.
So join us to honor the invisible soldiers of our daily life and to show everyone that no one should be discriminated against based on race, religion, class or gender.
6:30pm until 7:30pm
Site of the collapsed building, Fassouh-Achrafieh
