Since the start of the Lebanese revolution last October, Lebanese across the world have joined in solidarity, with peaceful yet passionate demonstrations in their cities. Whether they’re currently abroad for their education or have relocated for a new life or are children of Lebanese immigrants, they all carry Lebanon in their hearts, feel the pain of the people in the homeland, and desire the best for Lebanon.
Since the onset of the Revolution, their demonstrations were organized mostly, but not only, in front of the Lebanese embassy in their cities, carrying the same demands as the protests in Lebanon.
While the diaspora protests started spontaneously in the world cities, these fervent expats soon connected with each other and got themselves organized in an impressive chain of coordination across the seas and the continents.
Across the US and Europe, calls have been launched for the demonstration of Jan 26th, and we will be expecting pertinent details to share with you.
For time being, messages are spreading online, such as: “A ‘Rage From L.A.’ marching protest will be taking place in Los Angeles USA in support of the “Week of Anger” in Lebanon,” and “We are back! California, it’s time to rise again, especially with all the escalation in our beloved Lebanon.”
