In the lurking depth of the economic crisis, people had to develop knew venues to make a living, fill a niche, sometimes create a niche to fill.. In the creative minds of some .. it was protesting ( may i point out, that in Lebanon you can get paid for that, and some have made a habit of it ) …
Today and now… Lebanese are marching demanding better living conditions in Lebanon, but … from whom? the government is still to be created…
“Khebz horrieye karameh watanieh …”
And like many other things that the Lebanese Media forgets to mention… this protest (even though mild) being un-order by a “Leader” was ignored..
Quoting Mubarak from his comment to an Israel peer: “this is no beirut, this no tunis”
I couldn’t agree more. Egypt is no Lebanon, and Lebanon is no Egypt ( not to draw borders or separation, after all we fall under the dilemma of crisis of tyrants..) the main reason is.. In Egypt the people are untied against the tyrant in Lebanon we have labelled each other tyrants. Until we unify and realize we are all one in this, one people under the only Lebanese Flag. Our demands are weak, our protests are even weaker.
