The anti-war anti-globalization movements are gathered in Beirut from September 17 to 19, 2004 with two main objectives: First, to broaden and strengthen the movement by debating and developing common perspectives, strategies and campaigns for the coming years. The second objective is to deepen existing links, and to develop new links, with anti-war and anti-globalization forces especially in the Arab world, which partly explains the decision to hold this assembly in Beirut, as claimed by the organizers.

The Feeling of Existence
What actually is it that makes an object “feel” the presence of the other object when the two of them collide? Would it be possible for that object to “feel” the presence of the other object, if it were unable to “feel” its own presence? By what means then does it “feel” the presence of others? Take, for instance, that you are one of those who don’t believe that man has “the feeling of existence.” The question now is: “How then do you come to have the feeling that you are ‘always present’ and that you are always at the present?” Obviously, the feeling meant here is one that has nothing to do at all with your sensory feelings and neither does it have anything to do at all with your emotional feelings.

Although, Lebanon has joined international treaties and conventions related to preserving civil and political rights, it still rejects to sign the 1951 Geneva Convention concerning the refugees’ status. The Lebanese General Security department regulates the process of entry, stay and refuge of 'foreigners'. The law states that every person oppressed or politically persecuted and threatened by his/her life because of that reasons, can seek for political asylum in Lebanon, which might be given to him from an official committee in a decision that cannot be appealed.

Military Policy and the War in Iraq
The War in Iraq is a failure, and the U.S. government should never have waged it. As your president, one of my first tasks will be to begin the orderly process of bringing our troops home as quickly as can safely be accomplished.

Where Next for the Global Anti-War and Anti-Globalization Movements?
September brings back memories of atrocities ranging from 9/11/01, to the CIA's involvement in the coup that installed General Pinochet in Chile (9/11/73), and to the massacre of Sabra and Shatila on 9/15/82. These tragedies are demonstrably intertwined beyond the coincidences of date and that they claimed similar numbers of civilian victims.
