Photographer's Note

25 February 2005, York Street, Sydney

Another protest shot, perhaps sadly topical once more...

Lebanese Australians gather at an inner city garden in Sydney city to protest for the withdrawal of Syrian armed forces from Lebanon in February, 2005.

A week or two before this protest, Rafik Hariri, former Lebanese Prime Minister, was killed in an explosion in Beirut which prompted calls around the world for the withdrawal of Syrian armed forces from Lebanon.

Syrian troops eventually withdrew the day after this photograph was taken after mounting pressure from abroad, on the 26th of April, 2005.
