Lebanon: Anti-Government​ Protesters Show 'Joker' Face of 'Revolution'

Anti-government protesters in Beirut donned makeup in the style of comic villain ‘The Joker’ as well as Guy Fawkes masks as demonstrations continued into their sixth day on Tuesday.

Footage shows the image of the DC comic villain painted onto walls in the Lebanese capital as well as protesters sporting makeup in the style of Joaquin Phoenix’s recent big-screen portrayal of the character.

“First of all, this is the face of revolution and rebellion. We have come to the streets to demand our rights,” one protester said.

Another protester, wearing a Guy Fawkes mask, stated that people should “love” the face and not be afraid.

Demonstrations continue in Beirut despite Prime Minister Saad Hariri’s announcement of the economic reform package during a televised address on Monday.

The current demonstrations are believed to be the country’s biggest since 2015, as people protest against deteriorating living conditions, austerity measures, capital flight and the rise of the deficit and public debt.
