A little taste of revolution

 Some 400 members of Lebanon's secular Left marched on downtown Beirut today. Rightly pissed about the country's 'government' and rising food prices, the demonstrators called for change. Those I spoke to said they had been inspired by the recent events in Tunisia and Egypt-esque movement and were hoping for a revolution of their own. Maybe when the sun comes back out...
There's a good commentary on the protest at the Lebanese voices blog, here.

  1. Looks like a proper old school protest with more protesters than media.
