An entire nation is in chaos as a shocking message called for politicians to either resign from office or be hanged in public. The turmoil in the streets won’t be coming to an end anytime soon.
Following a massive blast in Beruit, Lebanon, which “killed nearly 160 people” and injured “nearly 6,000” more, protests erupted throughout the city. “Resignation or hang,” read a banner being held by protesters.
“Activists who called for Friday’s protest set up symbolic nooses at Beirut’s Martyrs’ Square to hang politicians whose corruption and negligence they blame for the explosion,” continued a report from Breitbart News.
Prime Minister Hassan Diab has proposed holding an early election to help ease the unrest. In the meantime, however, he has announced his resignation and that of his entire cabinet — a stunning move that no one expected.
“Today I announce the resignation of this government,” said Diab in a statement. “May God protect Lebanon.” Soon, Lebanese voters will have the opportunity to go to the ballot box and elect an entirely new government.
It has yet to be seen what kind of government will replace the current one, but Lebanon is in the midst of a political and social revolution after years of corruption and economic turmoil. The entire world is waiting to see what will happen next.
