Líbano mergulhado em protestos
October 25, 2019 -
A revolta antigovernamental no Líbano – a maior desde a independência – passou de protesto pelos problemas económicos e corrupção para
exigências de uma remodelação total do sistema político do país.
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.
