Thousands in Beirut rally against the sectarian regime

12 minute 30 seconds video that I shot yesterday.

Thousands of protesters congregated in Beirut Sunday calling for the end of “the sectarian regime.”
The march was the third of its kind in less than a month and attracted more than double the numbers seen at the last event on March 6, when some 10,000 were estimated to have hit the streets, organizers said.
Beginning at Sassine Square at noon, the crowd weaved its way to the Interior Ministry in Sanayeh, waving Lebanese flags and shouting slogans including “Game over sectarianism” and “Yes to equality, yes to a citizenry whole and complete,” before singing the national anthem outside the ministry.
