The European Union and Al Madina Theatre are proud to announce the second edition of Lebanon’s European Theatre Festival, which will be held from 27 September to 12 October throughout the cultural venues of Beirut.
On the occasion of the International Day of Democracy, the European Union reaffirms its commitment towards democracy as a fundamental right of every human being. Every woman and every man has to be free to participate to the political, economic and social life of her or his country. No one should fear to speak up, to demonstrate peacefully, to go to vote or to expect fair and inclusive policies from a government. Democracy can only function if participation and trust between democratic state institutions, governments and citizens are guaranteed.
