Angry citizens take to the streets: “We have had enough!”

It is not hard to believe that angry citizens have decided to take-to-the-streets one more time, because people have only seen disappointments from Prime Minister Najib Mikati’s government and slogan: “Together to rescue.”

Each minister “behaves according to his own comfort disregarding others,” and there is no “rescue,” only further drowning in the crises.

In this sense, returning to the street becomes legitimate since people no longer have anything to feed their children’s hunger, and silence is a crime in this case.

Is someone, however, attempting to use the street to achieve political goals?

During the audit, it was discovered that:

For a thousand reasons, the disagreement between Prime Minister Najib Mikati, who was unable to summon the Council of Ministers, and former Prime Minister Saad Hariri, who was unable to form a cabinet for thirteen months, remained private. This fight, though, remained a raging blaze under the ashes.
With the nation’s entrance into the “practical field” for parliamentary elections, efforts to “sharpen the spirit” and “tighten the nerves” began in an attempt to compensate for the accumulated losses, particularly by the “Future Movement.” The Future Movement’s decision and option originated from the least expensive place: the street.
The following may be traced by watching what was published by the “Future Movement” media:

“Monday of Anger” was the first title released.

The second title: Future Movement’s educational Bureau declares an open strike: “We have had enough!”

Considering the aforementioned titles, it is plausible to believe that President Saad Hariri chose to confront President Najib Mikati in order to move the street against him.

The street, however, is too huge for one party to organize or develop, especially from a group in power headed by more than one government that fell short of the expectations of the people who ousted one of them in the October 17, 2019 revolution. Prime Minister Hariri, who came out of the street through the “door,” is now seeking to return through its “window.”

However, it seems like Prime Minister Hariri forgot that this rage and anger peaked under the mandate of his cabinet, so how can the remedy be the disease?

Furthermore, confronting Prime Minister Mikati’s government is reasonable, but it is also necessary to confront Hezbollah at the same time, because it is the party capable of disrupting and obstructing in practice, while Prime Minister Mikati turns a blind eye.

Make a path for the street to claim its genuine demands; it does not need your periodic awakenings!
