The Lebanese Center for Human Rights (CLDH) is a local non-profit, non-partisan Lebanese human rights organization in Beirut that was established by the Franco-Lebanese Movement SOLIDA (Support for Lebanese Detained Arbitrarily) in 2006. SOLIDA has been active since 1996 in the struggle against arbitrary detention, enforced disappearance and the impunity of those perpetrating gross human violations.

Now Lebanon - Government may ban non-Lebanese demonstrations - July 26, 2011

A “well-informed” source said that Lebanon may ban all foreigners from demonstrating in the country.
“The Lebanese government is heading toward taking the decision to prohibit protests of non-Lebanese [people] on Lebanese territories,” the anonymous source told Saudi newspaper Okaz in an interview published Tuesday.
“This comes after [Sunday’s] clashes between [people] of two Syrian protests; the first against the regime and the second in support of the regime,” added the source.
He also said that the Lebanese government’s decision will be made “to avoid strife and an impact on Lebanon, which is divided when it comes to what’s happening in Syria.”
Syrians have been taking to the streets almost daily since March 15 to demand democratic changes amid a wave of protests across the Arab world. At least 1,486 civilians have died in Syria, according to human rights groups.
