“Act!ve Lebanon" was originally created after the revolutionary movement that started on October 17th 2019 in Lebanon, where the protesters demanded a profound transformation, and faced violence by the Lebanese security forces against protesters and increased oppression of the freedom of speech.
More than 7 demonstrations were held in Oslo in front of Stortinget between 2019 and 2020 in solidarity with the Lebanese revolution and many other protests was held abroad. We, the Lebanese diaspora that lives in Norway, along with Norwegian activists, want to strengthen our unity and come together with sustainable and concrete ideas. The time has come rise for Lebanon, while the country is fighting off a pandemic, political unrest, an unprecedented economic crisis and famine all at the same time: Lebanese people have been suffering too much due to the corrupted elite, the dysfunctional national institutions, the constant electoral fraud, the absence or inadequate access to the basic needs (electricity, water, trash), the sky rocketing rates of unemployment, etc. In the recent months, Lebanon faced a massive economic collapse that has resulted in freezing of funds, as Lebanese banks do not allow their customers to access to their own money. The Lebanese pound has now lost 80% of its value which is the 3rd highest inflation rate in the world, causing mass emigration and rise of suicide cases as poverty and hunger increases.
secularism, transparency, freedom and equality of the Lebanese people sustainably.
