In Lebanon, thousands poured into the streets to celebrate Tuesday after Prime Minister Saad Hariri announced his resignation, amid two weeks of massive anti-government protests.

Abdullah Hammoud: “First of all we want to congratulate the people, because the party of the people won today and not one party over the other, like in the past. The people triumphed over the political feudalism in the country. We will continue in our movement and in our uprising, in our revolution to overthrow the money sharks that maintain a grasp over the country’s joints.”

That’s protester Abdullah Hammoud. The demonstrators are continuing to call for the resignation of the rest of Lebanon’s ruling elite and the formation of a new government with independent experts.
