According to Lebanese students, Lebanon’s “sectarian system has entrenched the country”.

Today, students from across the country walked out of their schools and campuses for sit-ins and marches denouncing corruption.

Journalists as well. A couple even resigned from their positions.

There was also a massive women-led demonstration in Beirut, in addition to sit-ins in front of governmental institutions and the two largest cell phone companies.
