Lebanon's protesters formed a human chain across the country
Lebanon has been completely brought to a complete standstill after weeks of protests all over the country and the citizens have come together asking for change.
According to AFP, the protesters - who have thronged Lebanese towns and cities since October 17 - are demanding the removal of the entire political class, accusing politicians of all stripes of systematic corruption.
In what is their most united protest yet, citizens from Tripoli in the North to Tyre in the south formed a 170-kilometre chain running through Beirut.
Reports have called this an "unprecedented cross-sectarian mobilisation".
Nearly 170,000 people joined this historic event and the chain spanned 105 miles.
Prime Minister Saad Hariri has pushed through a package of economic reforms, while President Michel Aoun offered Thursday to meet with representatives of the demonstrators to discuss their demands.
