Lebanon gone wild
It’s a very critical time in the middle east as a whole, and in Lebanon as well.
With the current movement to end the Sectarian system in Lebanon, things seem smooth so far, peaceful protesting weekly in Beirut, a tent in Saida declaring an open strike and Baalback seemed to have it’s share as well with a moderate protest yesterday calling for the end of Sectarian systems of corruption. Not to mention that individuals distributing flyers for these protests have been kidnapped and threatened.
But of course most of this is not the concern of Lebanese Media stations. It’s only the concern of the people.
If someone forwards it to a Lebanese Broadcast, they might air it, but otherwise, it will remain unnoticed.
Lebanon is going crazy with life, events, protests, opinions and spotlights, but the Lebanese media broadcast prefer more talking about who-visited-who this morning, how some politician promoted more hatred and sectarian divide, as well more reminders of the despicable shatters of our representing political class.
The following video reminded me of how much we deserve better media:
yes lebanon is thriving with life. but we get lousy news! or we should i say, more Sectarian emphasis.
Just food for thought…
In other news, these are a few on-goings that caught my interest:
No rights No Women: March tomorrow, 8 March, in support of women’s rights (also, International Women’s Day)
Also for International Women’s Day: “Take Back the Night” March
