Amal Warns Media against 'Spreading Lies' on Involvement in Protest Violence

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Speaker Nabih Berri's Amal Movement denied on Monday accusations that its members stirred riots during the latest anti-trash demonstration held in downtown Beirut.

“Some media outlets have been claiming that Amal is involved in an attempt to stir strife and have accused the movement's members of seeking to stir riots to shove it in the latest events,” Amal's press office said in a statement.

Such accusations are “not true,” it said.

The statement accused the media outlets of lacking “professionalism and objectivity.”

The press office urged the media to inquire about any issue linked to the movement and warned them against “spreading lies.”

The statement added that Amal had the right to pursue them legally.

On Sunday, the “You Stink” online group and other protest organizers pulled their supporters out of downtown Beirut's Riad al-Solh Square and moved to the Martyrs' Square after men they described as political thugs began fighting with police.

The thugs, which some media reports said belonged to Amal, tried to tear down a barbed wire fence separating the crowds from the Grand Serail and threw molotov cocktails on security forces.

The violence sparked battles, which left scores injured.

One of the protesters, who was seriously injured in the head, died early Monday.

The media claims are absolutely true: It was the Amal Hezbollah thugs who were attacking the police.

لم تغب الطائفية عن تحرك “طلعت ريحتكم” في وسط بيروت بالأمس، فبالقرب من مسجد الأمين عمد بعض الشبان إلى خلع ملابسهم، والهتاف “شيعة شيعة شيعة”، ثمّ “حشيشة حشيشة بدنا نشرّع الحشيشة” و”المهدي راجع”…

i dont delete comments barryless, i dont know if you're aware of that, but it's naharnet's moderators who do it.
as for your video, how hard is it to find 5 morons and pay them 20 rials each to chant such stupid chants?

Thumb _mowaten_ 24 August 2015, 14:52

Plus all this discussion is sterile, and it's irrelevant. what matters is that we dont want this rotten government anymore, and it has to go, period.
And if that's the best the m14/LF can do to divert the topic then you guys are really in deep s...

mowaten it would have earned you an ounce of credibility if you admitted that your people could do something like this and condemned it. But you had to deny it and come up with this global conspiracy theory.
Face it, you people are exactly what this video shows.

Thumb barrymore 24 August 2015, 14:57

i disagree it is very relevant. The article is "Amal Warns Media against 'Spreading Lies' on Involvement in Protest Violence"
The evidence shows otherwise.

Thumb barrymore 24 August 2015, 14:59

if you want this government gone, why don't your ministers resign? lol

Thumb _mowaten_ 24 August 2015, 15:01

this does not qualify as evidence of anything, it's chimps on film chanting stupid chants, it's all it is. Who they really are and who sent them if anyone did is open to speculation.

Thumb _mowaten_ 24 August 2015, 15:03

I expect they will, with the rest of the government, but don't expect that they resign on their own while the true crooks stay cozy in their seats.

It was obvious who was behind the violence: we witnessed it live on TV and no need for pictures. People were demonstrating against failure to resolve the waste issue and ended up calling for re writing the constitution;) Aoun and Hezbollah are destroying the little left of what was once a state.

Default-user-icon Fed Up (Guest) 24 August 2015, 12:16

What you, and ALL Lebanese need to do is blame ALL politicians for the failure of this state with no exceptions. Once your convictions are aligned to this fact, only then will Lebanon become a true civilized, progressive state. For decades, Lebanese have been killing eachother and pointing fingers at eachother with blind support to their militias/factions/party leaders. This is exactly what the mafia (political leaders) want you to do so they can continue to rape and pillage the resources of this great country. Lebanon needs qualified leaders to run the country but with the mass exodus of educated citizens bolting from the country as soon as they graduate university, only the blind sheep remain to ignorantly follow their factional leaders to their demise. WAKE UP LEBANON!!!

The thugs were not trying to "topple the cabinet" by breaking into the serail, they were trying to make the protest look bad. the protest which wants the cabinet to resign, that cabinet your mafia war criminal supports.
Breaking into the serail wouldn't accomplish anything anyway, it's just an empty shell, but believe me if HA wanted to break into it they would have been through in less than 5 minutes.
