PSP Holds Protest in Beirut against Trump's Jerusalem Move
The Progressive Youth Organization, the youth wing of the Progressive Socialist Party, organized a sit-in Wednesday outside the U.N.'s headquarters in Beirut to denounce plans by US President Donald Trump to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
Organizers said the demo was being held in rejection of “any decision that alters Jerusalem's status as the capital of the State of Palestine.”
“We came here to tell the entire world that Jerusalem is our capital, that Jerusalem is our pride and that Jerusalem is Arab,” a PSP youth official said at the demo.
“In the name of all Lebanon's youths, the Progressive Youth Organization categorically rejects any decision aimed at besieging Jerusalem, and it calls for an uprising at all levels in rejection of that,” the official added.
