Protesters in Aley call for unity in confronting sectarian system
A number of citizens from Aley and the Upper Metn region staged a sit-in outside the Serail of Aley on Sunday, marking the "National Day of Popular Revolution against the Authority of Corruption", a day of national dignity where they raised slogans and banners denouncing the performance of the political parties in power.
Demonstrators marched from the Serail towards the Central Bank branch in Aley, where Socialist Party Member Saad al-Masri gave a word on behalf of participants condemning the current deteriorating conditions in the country, the increasing impoverishment and unemployment and widespread of corruption.
"Let us be united in the face of this sectarian system, which is the main cause of all these negative consequences we are living. We will not let them feel comfortable while they are looking for quotas, awaiting the indication from abroad to form a government," said Masri, confirming that other sit-ins will follow in demand for change and reform.
