  1. The Arab Spring is still “wintering”.

  2. لبنان.. يا قطعة سما 🇱🇧🇱🇧❤❤

  3. It’s to bad American’s don’t stand up for there country like this and Hong Kong and other countries.

    • Trump bringing taxes down but if democrats win and raise tax like they said they would all hell will break loose.

    • @Renzo Well try helping Americans instead of illegals and we wouldn’t have that

    • @Donald Trump Bright side. At least their not going to reproduce

    • @photoshopknight We arent war mongers trying to wipe out the middle east like you guys

    • @Davey Badman -“Lebanon & Hong Kong want to be like America & the west, that (that’s) why there (they’re) demonstrating. What exactly do you want Americans to stand up against.(?)
      Your (you’re) comparing suppressed counties (countries) with the most free & liberated country in the world man,(.)
      what (What)you talking about.(?) Your (you’re) silly.”
      _______________________________

      The people in Lebanon and in Hong Kong
      are dissatisfied with their governments.
      In 1997, Hong Kong stopped being a British protectorate and became part of China. Hong Kong has traditionally been much more democratic and capitalist than mainland China which is governed by a small Communist elite.The residents are resisting the autocratic government centered in Beijing.
      The people of Lebanon are protesting economic problems brought on by government corruption.
      Government corruption, economic woes and betrayal of traditional democratic ideals are the cause of discontent in this country, too.

  4. Cool, learn from Hongkong!

    • Hong Kong is homogeneous, Lebanon is defined by religious sectarianism, if the people are dividing themselves and cannot trust each other, Christians trust the West and Israel over tge muslims, Sunni muslims trust S.Arabia and Palestinian refugees over the Shiaa Lebaneses, Shiaa trust Iran over Sunni countrymen.. there is noway for a United revolution in this situation.

    • Hongkong learn from tunisia !!

    • @younes jorge I will agree with you on this one.. different factions comes with different ideas understandings believes and also ways of dealing with things…

  5. Good for them!! We’re all sick of corruption and crooked politicians. Best of luck to the ppl of Lebanon. ❤❤

  6. Corruption all over the world for centeries, when will this human norm end? Corruption kills…corruption doesn’t allow children to eat, corruption kills dreams, it is the one human trait that I most despise.

  7. I love seeing this. It’ll be the overthrow of the French aristocracy all over again, and we get to watch it in HD.

    • The plague of Lebanon is the Palestinian refugees who started the civil war with the help of Arafat and the Sunni minions. Lebanon was the pearl of the east.

    • @younes jorge YOU’RE telling a liberalAss reamer facts … That’s like telling a democrat that Obama WAS a worthlessPOS… THEY don’t care …

  8. This revolution is happening due to an accumulation of taxes on everything and everywhere not only on whatsapp
    This is the first time in Lebanon’s history all the lebanese people are unite, no one cares about religions or anything, they are all together fighting the corrupted government.
    We all hope to see results 😕❤️
