What is the solution to Lebanon's economic and political crisis? | Inside Story
Lebanese people from all religious and political backgrounds are calling for the Prime Minister, President and other leaders to resign.
They say they want a revolution, many criticising their own political leaders - something unprecedented in a country divided by sectarianism.
Two days and nights of the largest protests in years were sparked by tax reforms - including charging to use the social media service Whats App.
That plan was quickly scrapped but there are other, longstanding grievances.
They include high unemployment, constant electricity shortages, poor infrastructure and corruption.
The protests are a challenge to the unity government and Prime Minister Saad Hariri.
He's blaming parties in his coalition for obstructing reforms required to unlock $11 billion in aid pledged by international donors.
Are there hopes for meaningful political and economic change?
