Huge anti-government protests sweep Lebanon

Morning Star | June 14, 2020

Prime Minister Hasan Diab asked protesters to be patient and said that his government was trying to fight corruption.

But the Lebanese Communist Party says his administration continues the policies of its predecessors and has warned that its attempts to get a financial lifeline from the International Monetary Fund “will undermine Lebanon’s sovereignty because the IMF will intervene in economic policy.”

It called on people to “escalate the popular uprising” for a “civic and democratic state.”
