Member of the Democratic Gathering, MP Hadi Abul-Hassan, considered Sunday that it is not permissible to continue with policies that endanger citizens' safety and civil peace, increase street tension, and destroy the image of the State.
Abul-Hassan's words came as he represented Progressive Socialist Party Chief, former MP Walid Jumblatt, at the "Labor Liberation Front in Lebanon" Conference held at the Rivera Hotel in Beirut this morning, with senior political officials and prominent dignitaries attending.
Abul-Hassan paid tribute to all comrades and workers of Lebanon, "to those hard-working laborers who endure the harshness of life and the bitterness of challenges," with special tribute to "the General Labor Union for its pioneering role and steadfastness and cohesion...bearing the concerns and demands of workers."
"We reaffirm our solid and steadfast position, with full advocacy towards preserving your rights and concerns, at a time when we are beginning to see the attempts to bully the popular classes and labor groups by some theorists who aim to protect their interests," said Abul-Hassan.
He denounced the attempts of some politicians to throw the burden of the country's crises on the oppressed Lebanese citizens, evading their responsibilities and the failure of their policies. "Hence, we renew our firm and decisive position against any tampering with the acquired rights of the working classes," Abul-Hassan corroborated.
"Despite all the tensions and challenges, and above all considerations, the State remains the foundation and the law the basis through which the rights and dignities of people can be preserved," he emphasized, stressing the need to maintain civil peace and preserve the value of ethics as the best means to distinguish political performance.
