The Catholic International Union of Press – Lebanon (UCIPLIBAN) published on may 4, 2006, a memorandum greeting the media martyrs for Independence Resurgence : Jebran Tueini and Samir kassir. The memo demanded the unveiling of the killers and their detainment. Both martyrs have bestowed their lives for the liberation of Lebanon and its people. Nowadays, the Lebanese miss their voices that represented their sufferings and ambitions. The Union stands in solidarity with “voice of love”, and journalist May Chidiac, who had been awarded by UNESCO, the international Prize for the freedom of press.
They assured that the press in Lebanon is an outstanding symbol of freedom, and an embodiment of its independence and democracy in the Orient.
