Lebanon Protest Camp Closes Ranks after Blast — Naharnet

Dozens of Lebanon’s main opposition groups and parties on Sunday announced a common position and plan to tackle the country’s multiple crises.

The myriad groups active in the unprecedented protest movement that erupted in October last year had subsequently been chronically unable to project unity.

Representatives of the various organisations made their announcement on Martyr’s Square, the Beirut hub of the protests that many Lebanese call “the October 17 revolution”.

The protests, that briefly rattled Lebanon’s hereditary ruling elite, called for an end to sectarianism and corruption through a complete overhaul of the system.
