Lebanese revolutionaries can’t reach the Parliament or the Council of Ministers, both located in Beirut and protected by fences, security forces, and recently a cement wall. Their voices were only heard on social media and television broadcasts, until they started coming across politicians in public places and events, and crashing their meetings.
This is also a form of pressure, making their statement loud and clear. The statement is that those who robbed and demeaned the Lebanese people and brought their country to such a degraded situation are no longer welcomed or accepted.
In a similar scenario to the AUB incident, Lebanese revolutionaries pressured the Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Elie Ferzli, to leave a restaurant in Gemmayzeh yesterday.
The Lebanese people are taking actions at any chance they get to express their disproval and rejection of current and former politicians. They are holding them all liable for leading or allowing the country to crumble under their responsibility. Their motivation to express themselves is shown on a daily bases.
These incidents appear to be the start of an exponential trend. The people are getting frustrated to be ignored in their protests that will soon hit three months.
All that they want is to be heeded by the ruling class holding the fate of the country in their hands; a country that belongs democratically more to the people than to the ruling class.
