Demonstrations or protests are part of everyday life here in Beirut -  there's often dancing and singing involved - and it is understandable when you hear some of the middle-aged laws that are still around for no apparent reason. Like the fact that women can't give their nationality to their children (q u e ?!). During my first week in Beirut I had the chance to take part in two demonstrations; the first one for the, very clever, "No Rights, No Women"-campaign and the second one to disarm the Hizbollah (one million people were estimated to have participated in the latter).

No rights? No women!
