Despite continued efforts by opposition to end the protesters' movement, people have not stopped calling for the demise of the decades-old, sectarian-based political system that has left the country reeling.
It's their voice, spirit, and pain that's bringing the nation together like never before, with citizens uniting in public spaces they recently reclaimed, joining discussions in Martyr's Square, and painting the country's walls with graffiti.
The latter form of art is taking over Lebanon's public scene. The drawings of local graffiti artists reflect people's frustration and anger but also form a collective portrait of their hope for a better country.
Here are a few of the most powerful graffiti arts inspired by the ongoing Lebanese revolution:
1. Graffiti like no other
3. Power of the people
4. Tribute to a martyr
5. Revolution in 55 languages
6. Lebanese sarcasm on display
7. The art of peaceful protests
8. There had to be a "hela hela ho" reference
9. The revolution is female
10. Down with our collective anxiety
11. Silent no more
Lebanon's revolution so far
On Oct.17, people in Lebanon took to the streets to demand their fundamental rights and call out the government's failure to fulfill its most basic obligations.
What started as a spontaneous demonstration developed into a nationwide uprising that has witnessed a number of historic milestones. The revolution achieved its first major victory 13 days in, when Prime Minister Saad Hariri announced his resignation, citing a "dead-end" and the need for a "positive shock." Around two weeks in, another win achieved was the election of an independent candidate for the presidency of the Beirut Bar Association. Melhem Khalaf won with 2,341 votes, though opponent Nader Gaspard was politically supported.
While some including the country's president General Michel Aoun have claimed the movement lacks a unified list of demands, protesters have been vocal about the purpose of their movement from the very start. Activists have emphasized that their uprising aims to tackle issues such as poverty, high prices versus low minimum wage, unemployment, incompetent public education institutes, misappropriation of public funds, and fatally expensive healthcare services.
