    Default Lebanon: Tomorrow we are having a demonstration against the tax raise

    This Wednesday, The Lebanese Parliament passed a policy to increase our tax from 10% to 11%.
    And Lebanese Parliamentarians extended their own mandate illegally twice.
    In addition, Lebanon is currently suffering the effects of the civil war, which are an economic crisis with inflation, high unemployment rate, the minimum wage is only 420$/month, our politicians have raised taxes by 1% and all our taxes are filling their wallets. As a result our infrastructure is poor, causing daily electrical blackouts with swollen electric bills, water shortage, overprice poor quality internet & telecommunications service, some people are dying near hospital entrances because they canít afford it, Hezbollah are stronger than our Military, a Syrian Refugee crisis, corruption and nepotism, and a recent garbage crisis. Because the Lebanese political system is based on sectarianism, and all the politicians deals are based on confessional quotas with four major religious sects the Sunni Muslims, Shia Muslims, Maronite Christians, and Druze in addition to the religion is stated on a citizenís ID card.
    We #You_Stink activists are organizing tomorrow's mass rally, and we are expecting thousand attendees and it is very likely to get hot, police may use tear gas , baton sticks, water cannons, rubber bullets, tasers , pepper spray, and live ammunition, SWAT may intervene.
    So I need ideas for tomorrows protest? It could be signs, banners, protection, tactics.

    We need lower taxes, and our politicians steal from us the taxpayer instead of using tax dollars for better infrastructure, security and military

    LOL. Welcome to the club.
    The essential English leadership secret does not depend on particular intelligence. Rather, it depends on a remarkably stupid thick-headedness. The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous.
