Lebanon is in the grip of unprecedented process.
1.5 million people, that is 1/4 of the population have taken to the streets over the last five days to call for political and economic reform.
You can see the sheer size off the protest here in Beirut's Martyrs Square yesterday.
On Sunday, the process were triggered in part by a plan to tax calls on what's APP and other messaging services, but have turned into a revolved against a weak government, ailing services and a looming economic collapse.
A nationwide strike is being observed today can see how empty the streets are here.
Roads, a block two and the Cabinet is meeting, reportedly to approve a new set of measures they hope will satisfy the protesters.
Let's take you live now to Baber, just to show you the pictures there.
Right now, you can see people blocking the roads.
There have bean that protesters out on the street as well, enforced today and in amongst the dollars our correspondent Runny Rue Hyon, who gave us the latest from there first thing they wanted was to block any attempt by the government.
Any further attempt by the government to raise taxes off the kind that disproportionately affect people wasn't just the what's up backs, but it was a series of proposals by the Cabinet that smooth protests to begin with, and people came out very angry against any kind of tax.
That's what this proportionately affect poor people on any attempt by the government to solve the very deep structural problems in the Lebanese economy simply by extracting more money from the people on that was the beginning of it.
But after that, it developed into something much bigger development.
Oh, a concentrated attack on the very nature off the system Lebanon on and also calls for the resignation of the government off the president of the entire parliament as well as new elections.
So lots of demands coming out from the street just in Beirut, but across the country and the government right now under intense pressure, what can the government do to bring an end to these process around me?
Because the president has said, I feel the protesters pain.
But are there any policies they can put in place that would satisfy the protesters?
There have been leaks about certain ideas circulating in the government, but it's far from clear whether any of these ideas would be enough to pacify the protesters.
There's an issue of trust to begin with.
People here are under no illusion that the government stepping back from these taxes is something that would be sustained if they were to leave the streets.
They know that it is intense pressure that has forced the government to back down from these measures.
And they also know that if they were to come off the street, there's it's quite likely that the government might feel that the pressure is less now and that can maybe either resort to the measures that was thinking about earlier or not implements reform seriously.
But there's also Western about what kind of reforms are needed.
For example, the protesters may not necessarily agree with the kind of reforms proposed by the government.
Higher tax on the profits of the banks is something definitely that's very popular.
But other measures like privatization, for example, would probably divide people more than United and for the people on the streets, trust the government itself to carry out any such reforms, given the level of waste and corruption that everybody knows exist in in the the Lebanese system, so it's very difficult to think what the government might do today to get people off the street.
