NNA - The Bachir Gemayel Foundation and the Kataeb Ashrafieh District Branch on Friday marked the 36th commemoration of the martyrdom of President Bachir Gemayel and his comrades, during a ceremony in Ashrafieh attended by MP Nadim Gemayel and his sister, Yumna, and martyrs' families.

Attending the ceremony had also been MP Imad Wakim at the top of a delegation of the Lebanese Forces, Kataeb Party's Secretary General Nizar Najarian, on top of a party delegation, as well as the Executive Director of "Bachir Gemayel Foundation" Alfred Madi.

Candles were lit and wreaths were laid on the martyrs' tomb at the Kataeb House's yard.

Attendees stood a minute of silinece on the souls of fallen martyrs of September 13, 1982.

In his delivered word, MP Gemayel called for building a state enjoying much more noble causes than temporal and superficial ones, such as power-sharing quotas and positins.

"It is due time to build a homeland and give real meaning to freedom, independence and equality that Bachir craved for every citizen," MP Gemayel said, adding that "the sole thing that brings us together is a state that has a vision and a project."

Gemayel called for overcoming fear and working for political equality and balance, deemed as the pillars of the nation away from intimidation and threats.

The Lawmaker also saluted the judiciary and brave judges who worked on the indictment against the killers of Bachir Gemayel and his companions.
