Sidon residents took to the streets Sunday to commemorate the 43rd anniversary of the death of the Popular Nasserite Organization founder, the late Sidon MP Maarouf Saad."We say no to wars that divide, no to the efforts of the colonial powers and regional states to impose their control over the Arab countries, no to extremist terrorist groups, no to the series of massacres against unarmed civilians," the former MP's son Osama Saad told the crowd, noting that dialogue is the optimal approach towards conflict.He talked about Palestinian rights, an issue Maarouf staunchly supported, paying tribute to 17-year-old Palestinian prisoner Ahed Tamimi and other Palestinian children fighting the Israeli occupation. Saad, who was also a supporter of Sidon's fishermen, was murdered while leading one of their protests.
