Líbano está sumergido en protestas

October 25, 2019 - La revuelta antigubernamental en Líbano – la mayor desde su independencia – ha pasado de la furia por la economía y la corrupción a demandas de un cambio radical del sistema político de la nación

The unprecedented mass protests come amid a deepening economic crisis in Lebanon. They have united Lebanese against the country’s sectarian-based leaders, who have ruled since the end of Lebanon’s 1975-90 civil war.

Lebanon is one of the world’s most indebted nations, with public debt over 150 percent of the gross domestic product. The protesters accuse the politicians of amassing wealth even as the country gets poorer.
