SOLIDA has been active since 1996 in the struggle against arbitrary detention, enforced disappearance and the impunity of those perpetrating gross human violations.

Feltman welcomes [STL] funding ... Maronite bishops support peoples’ right to determine their fate
Hezbollah turns against Aoun’s rightful demands
Gen. Michel Aoun received a double blow in Cabinet Wednesday: Aoun was persuaded and gave up on boycotting Cabinet sessions and Labor Minister Charbel Nahhas’ proposal for wage increases collapsed when the majority of ministers voted against his plan.
On another front, eyes were turned Wednesday to a visit by U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs Jeffrey Feltman to Beirut during which the U.S. official met with Prime Minister Najib Mikati, former Minister Nasib Lahoud, Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri and a number of March 14 leaders.
Feltman handed Mikati a letter from U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The contents of the letter were not disclosed. But Feltman said the U.S. welcomed Lebanon’s decision to fund the Special Tribunal for Lebanon.
Meanwhile, the Council of Maronite Bishops said it supported the “peoples’ right to determine their fate and choose the form of rule that suits them.”
