The Lebanese revolution is steadfast; its peaceful demonstrators remain united.
As they embark again on nationwide protests, attempts are made by the army to re-open and clear blocked roads.
Marching hand in hand towards the Central Bank, then to Riad El Solh Square through the now-symbolic Ring tunnel, demonstrators highlight once again, that they are ONE: a red line that nobody can cross.
A televised speech by President Michel Aoun, in which he pledged to fight corruption, summoned the transitional government to be more vigilant, and called for a technocratic cabinet to be formed, was met by protestors across the country with the popular change: ‘The people demand the fall of the regime’ (الشعب يريد إسقاط النظام)
With no palpable changes on the political scene in sight, along with the revolution resolutely making its voice heard to the ruling political elite, a decision to re-open schools was reversed; and so was the ongoing communal classes, lectures, and educational activities for students.
