A second protest demanding the right for women to pass on the Lebanese nationality to their children was also taking place outside the Ministry of Interior in Sanayeh.

Unbelievable that women cannot pass on nationality!!!

These women are doing more for freedom than all of the war-loving politicians in the U.S. have ever done.

Freedom is something to LIVE for, not something to kill and die for. We expand the envelop of our freedom when we exercise our rights. That's just what these women are doing, and it's something I hope we Americans will do, someday soon.
