“Everybody’s saying, ‘Oh, we’re in a deep crisis,’ but nobody is offering any solution,” Nuna from Triumphant Mercy Lebanon says of caretaker politicians.

Two primary forces are driving Lebanese to the streets, she continues. “One is we have been without the government for almost two years. Even the caretaker government now says that they want to bail out and leave a vacuum,” Nuna explains.

“On the other side, the economic crisis. People can’t afford even basic needs anymore.”

While most of Lebanon’s protestors gather for these two reasons, others join demonstrations with a political agenda. “Some people are there just because the leaders told them to go and make problems,” Nuna says.

“Some are terrorists; some are from Hezbollah; some are from the Shiite party.”
