The Amal Movement appears to have canceled the annual commemoration of the disappearance of its founder Imam Musa Sadr for the second year in a row because of security fears.Instead, Amal Movement leader Speaker Nabih Berri is expected to give a televised speech.In years past, the commemoration has been held in the Bekaa Valley, Beirut, Nabatieh or Tyre, and attracted tens of thousands of supporters who came out to hear Berri, as well as Sunni, Shiite and Christian figures, pay tribute to Sadr's legacy. Amal's green flags have been raised across Nabatieh and Zahrani, where Amal enjoys a strong base, alongside pictures of Sadr, Sheikh Mohammad Yaaqoub, and the journalist Abbas Badreddine, who all went missing in Libya on Aug. 31, 1978 .Tyre resident Mustafa Nasser said the people of south Lebanon will never forget Sadr because he cared so much for the country.
