33] – Tune into Lebanon: Economic Crisis, Political Gridlock — with Rania Khalek on Thurs., Dec. 2 from 4 to 5 PM EST. On Oct. 17, 2019, the people of Lebanon took to the streets to fight for their basic human rights. The normalized daily life of the average Lebanese family includes limited electricity, crumbling healthcare, and a nonexistent future for an entire generation of children. The devaluation of the Lebanese pound has caused many to make the choice of whether to buy milk or to pay for electricity. The mobilization of youth demanding basic rights with no foreign political intervention had led corrupt political parties to make the excuse of how embassies are funding the revolution. This sparked a violent response from the corrupt government and ruling political parties. Register at
