Government kills protesters in South Kurdistan. Lebanese demand end of sectarian system

Several have been killed by government-sponsored forces in South Kurdistan (aka Iraqi Kurdistan) as demonstrators went to the streets demanding the end of corruption and the single twin-party system that governs the autonomous state since the US-led invasion of 2003.

Lebanon: first demonstration against the sectarian system

Lebanon enjoys a democratic (parlamentarian) regime but people is forced to vote along religious/communitarian lines, keeping the country artificially divided internally that way and forcing a religious identity upon people. For those reasons Lebanese have gone out to the streets demanding the end of this system imposed by the colonial powers in the past and perpetuated by means of civil war and Zionist invasions.
