For three months now, people in Lebanon have been demanding change.

A worsening economic crisis means many can’t find jobs, pay for basic goods, or even withdraw their money from banks.

And after months of peaceful rallies, the protesters have called for a week of rage.

Police fired tear gas and water cannon to disperse crowds near the parliament in Beirut on Saturday and Sunday. More than 460 people were injured.

Protesters are repeating their demand for Lebanon’s sectarian political system to end and a government of independent experts with no links to traditional parties be installed.

So what’s needed to break the stalemate?

And are Lebanon’s leaders willing to change the political system?

Presenter: Richelle Carey
