Coups d'Etat.
Series produced between 2006 and 2008 on the various political events and coups de force organized by the March 8 coalition (led by Hezbollah), to seize power from the Hariri clan. From the sit-in in the city center which lasted 18 months to general strikes through meetings worthy of Big Brother ... Until May 7, 2008 when, once again, the Lebanese army shone by its uselessness. The whole ending with tracer bullets fired in the sky over Beirut as a sign of victory, the Siniora government giving in to arms.
In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.
