Hundreds of people joined a march dubbed ‘No confidence in this government’ in Beirut on Sunday, rejecting the economic and social policies of the new coalition government.

The demonstrators marched through central Beirut to express their distrust in the new government, two days after the country’s parliament gave the new government of Prime Minister Saad Hariri a vote of confidence.

The march was organised by various civil society groups and NGOs, including the Lebanese Communist Party.

Leader of the People’s Movement party Ibrahim al-Halabi, who attended the demonstration, said that “today’s demonstration confirms again that there is no confidence in this government.”

He went on to say that the new government “like its predecessor with its economic and social policies, is the same as the previous government, so there is no solution in the country except to change this economic and social system.”

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
