Remember when the pro-Syrian folks protested the protest of Syrian occupation in Lebanon?
Well that sparked counter counter counter-occupation protest (the good guys)… and it was big:
Nearly one million people have gathered for an opposition rally in Beirut, officials say – a month after the death of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.
The BBC’s Kim Ghattas in Beirut says the crowds turned the city centre into a sea of red, white and green – the colours of Lebanon’s national flag.
They were protesting against the presence of Syrian forces in Lebanon.
The demonstration surpassed recent pro-Syrian rallies and is thought to be the biggest in Lebanese history.
The fact the Lebanon might crumble into civil war is a real possibility. Let’s hope the conflict is settled with flags, signs and votes. It was heartening to see the pro-freedom folks were not discouraged.
