Demonstrators are protesting for the fourth day against dire economic conditions in the heavily indebted country. Tens of thousands of demonstrators have gathered in Lebanon’s streets on Sunday for a fourth day of anti-government protests that have led to the resignation of a Christian party from the government. Demonstrators, who have been on the streets since Thursday, have pledged to continue marching despite the resignations late on Saturday of four government members from the key political party, Lebanese Forces. Labour Minister Camille Abousleiman, one of the four to quit the government, told Al Jazeera shortly after the decision that they had “lost faith in the government’s ability to effect change and address the problem”.
