Lebanon protesters hit banks in 'week of wrath' - BBC News

  • Banks in Beirut were targeted by demonstrators during what they have called a 'week of wrath', in protest against the country's banking crisis.
    Protests have been ongoing since October 2019. Lebanon's commercial banks have been restricting savers' access to their deposits and blocking most transfers abroad for more than two months.
    Protesters say they will continue to take to the streets until a new government is formed.

    Why don't mainstream media do an investigation into corruption of the political parties, religious leaders, ministers and parliament in Lebanon?
    Give the audience names and cases.
    The parties have hijacked the Republic of Lebanon against the constitution.

      Right. What a "coincidence" that everyone that isn't America's vassal is suffering right now. Why isn't Saudi Arabia doing bad? They have nothing to offer but oil and their leadership are brutal Islamists. Why is the Saudi economy not in complete chaos? Oh right, because the US banking regime isn't sanctioning the Saudis to death.

      @Nour !! There has been more press coverage on Lebanon in a week than there has on France,our immediate neighbour, in a year, where 10 times the numbers -everyone _but_ the police have been turning out. The BBC won't cover France because it is about a country held hostage by bankers and *will* cover Lebanon because it is potentially regime change for an adversary of Israel. not hard, _honey_ .

    • Nour !!
      Nour !! 2 months ago

      @emu cat ALL THE COVERAGE??? ALL???? Woah there...I'm telling you again: People are starving, people are committing suicide, the protesters are closing all roads leading the closure of schools including university and the adults cant go to work cz of the blocked roads. Everything and I mean EVERYTHING became expensive, the revolution becomes VERY violent from time to time leading to hundreds and hundreds of death, the government is increasing prices literally everything and is stealing the peasants' money. Electricity? We dk her. Food? We dk her! Money? We dk her. Tell me we dont deserve the attention! Tell me this is minor compared to France plz?

    • Nour !!
      Nour !! 2 months ago

      @emu cat Oh okay. So if France was right next to you she'd give you all the credit and announce almost every single detail of whats happening. Honey we're talking worldwide!And no greater than anyone? Are you serious? This is literally not what I meant. We're all facing problems. Dammit Australia's burning down and everyone is raising awareness and trying to help and donate. Do I tell them to stop what they're doing and be more concerned about Lebanon? Every country struggles sure, but we're focusing on the ones with bigger trouble. And tbh this is the first time I see Lebanon in foreign news reportal.

    • emu cat
      emu cat 2 months ago

      @Nour !! You are in a different continent,France is right next door to us, the fact that the BBC are giving Fance NO coverage and Lebanon all the coverage probably means very little to you. Your difficulties are no greater than anyone elses and in fact have less relevance to the British. EDIT - can still afford hair dye can't you.

Do you want to stop the poverty and slave system?? then get rid of the central banking system and put those responsible in jail.... no more QE - get rid of the Federal Reserve..... before WW3 happens to hide their crimes...

    Lebanon has been ruled for more than thirty years by the same families. or may I say militias. They have corrupted our systems, polluted our nature, stolen public money and they have driven our beloved country into very complex and unwanted international affairs. National priorities are sacrificed for their own bank accounts. they have billions and the people who they should be working for are hungry. we have no electricity, no social services. education in extremely expensive. for thirty years those same faces have brainwashed generations. They have shown them war and hatred and division. The people became afraid of speaking up because they knew if they did call for justice those corrupted militias would cause another civil war. But enough is enough. thirty years of silence and numerous peaceful protests later it is time to show them that enough is enough. They have ruined our lands, our dignity, our lives and our history. they are a disgrace to us. they have shown the entire globe that they can steal and ruin a nation that isn't strong enough to stop them. so if this is what it takes for them to see that the people are angry and hungry and in pain then let it be.
