New waves of anti-government demonstrations broke out across the country again last week. The protests were a reaction to the continuing plunge of the Lebanese currency, which dropped to a new low. Most Lebanese citizens have lost virtually all means of supporting themselves and their families, and they have put the blame on the greed and incompetence of their political leaders.
Pressure from the ongoing protests, which began last fall, led to the resignation of Prime Minister Saad Hariri in October. The new government hasn’t fared much better, as citizens are still outraged they can’t withdraw most of their own money from the banks.
