Showdown in the streets

According to Nassrallah Tuesday shall be THE DAY! The start of the second phase, in which the opposition will continue its campaign to topple the government. He called for a general strike and several opposition leaders’ explicitly spoke of roads closing and civil disobedience, while Frangieh in another verbal attack, similar to when he insulted the Christian Patriarch, threatened anyone even thinking of going to work!

However, 14 March are standing firm, they ordered the army to keep roads open and asked its supporters to consider Tuesday as a normal working day.

In other words, it will be a showdown in the streets, between those who want to work, study and live normally against those who want to close roads and business by force and paralyze the country. In a futile effort to up the pressure on the government and pushed to offer its resignation.

The consequences of these escalations are, of course, trivial to the opposition. They will even blame 14 March for them. In the end everything pale in front of their “divine” goals and plans.

Finally, I will try to keep you abreast of tomorrow’s main events!
