Point of view

Ghalia Al Alwani- Syrian Journalist
When most confident speeches spewing out of politicians are often followed by tragic events, the totalitarian citizen is left feeling unsafe, insecure, and constantly in a ‘survival of the fittest’ mental state, much like a longtime victim of abuse.

I spent ten years in the “Khiam Detention Center”, the symbol of human rights violations in the twentieth century. The name of this agent, sometimes called “the Butcher of Khiam” , was all over the cells of the prison, which was controlled by the military.

It is the Corona stage of the Lebanese collapse. Corona’s service in the context of this collapse is in full swing, and in fact this epidemic has included us under other afflicted societies, after we’d been alone on a decline.

Hazem El Amin- Lebanese writer and journalist
The Lebanese uprising requires whoever stands against it to come up with a new method of opposition. Fault lines the authorities have long resorted to have now been completely obliterated. The state’s reaction to the uprising has been risible. “An agent of foreign embassies” is an old accusation they hurled at anyone who took to the streets. They once coined it to describe and scare protesters who now belong to a bygone era. When one new protester heard the expression, it drew an uncomprehending smile on his face. “Which embassy?”

Who are Lebanon’s protestors? This question haunted many on Friday night, as throngs of young men and women flowed into city squares across the country.
Hazem El Amin- Lebanese writer and journalist
