The November 24 Collective distributed the following report from their protest to call for the freedom of George Ibrahim Abdallah:
As part of the International Campaign for the release of political prisoner Lebanese George Ibrahim Abdallah, an occupation of the Consular Section of the Embassy of Lebanon in Paris took place for about an hour this Thursday, November 24, 2011.
For years, the Communists and progressives are fighting alongside Georges Ibrahim Abdallah, resisting Lebanese Communist Arab political prisoner in France for participating in the struggle for the liberation of his country’s imperialist and Zionist interference. He is prisoner in France for over 27 years.
Activists unfurled a banner, dispersed flyers and distributed leaflets, chanting “Free George Abdallah!”
Meeting with the consul, they denounced the lack of initiatives from the embassy about George Ibrahim Abdallah. To the fury of the French authorities, added the abandonment of Georges by the Lebanese ones.
Following this action, the consul has once again pledged to follow the case of George Abdallah.
The mobilization will continue with determination until the release of George Abdallah.
