YPIN Global Cafe: Lebanon Protests 2005 - 2020
1158 Broadway, Seattle, WA 98122, USA
Lebanon has been experiencing an unprecedented wave of protests
since October 17, 2019, novel in terms of scale, longevity, and appeal. Yet,
this movement did not emerge in a vacuum, and can be seen as a continuation of
mobilizations and conflicts over the past 15 years. How this history is told,
and where the boundary markers are placed, is not politically-neutral.
Join us in this discussion
of shifting narratives and frameworks that help insurgent actors, media
observers, and globally-minded citizens make sense of current events. This is a
discussion that is rooted in a particular place and time, but it is also
relevant to all contexts where people are making and writing history.
