Walk to Save Your Heritage *Part Deux*

Symbolic Walk with Candles (Gemmayze)

Remember the “Symbolic Walk with Candles” event that was scheduled to happen on Saturday September 25th? 

Well, despite bad weather conditions, approximately 500 people attended the walk, according to event organizer Pascale Ingea. 

You gotta give props to everybody who participated in the march to shed light on this very important issue. 

Areas such as Gemmayze are home to traditionally Lebanese houses which should be preserved, instead of being torn down!

    I really respect the intentions behind this movement. However, I feel that the objectives can be achieved more effectively by addressing the root causes of the problem: Lebanese land, inheritance laws, and urban planning failures make undue pressures over some areas over others. This economic reality will be difficult to overcome with new rules regarding some districts. Read about it on my blog.

    Have to agree with Oussama, while the walk is symbolic..what is REALLY being down to tackle this problem?
