More than 170,000 people held hands to cover a 171-kilometer distance along Lebanon’s coastal roads, from Tripoli in the North to Tyre in the South.
Today marks the third day of the Lebanese protests. Yesterday night, a festive atmosphere took.
The LU strike saw independent movements finding a space of resistance & members of sectarian parties putting their needs ahead of party loyalty.
There’s no in-between: Private education tuition fees continue to increase, while Lebanon’s only public university remains neglected by the government.
Women in Lebanon are angry, and rightfully so. Nationality, criminal, personal status, and labour laws.
The KAFA protest is particularly significant in the context of the upcoming parliamentary elections, with many signs stating that their bearers will not be voting for “patriarchal ideology.”
