Analysis: Will Lebanon’s anti-austerity protests work?

Tens of thousands of demonstrators have gathered in Lebanon’s streets on Sunday for a fourth day of anti-government protests that have led to the resignation of a Christian party from the government.
Demonstrators, who have been on the streets since Thursday, have pledged to continue marching despite the resignations late on Saturday of four government members from the key political party, Lebanese Forces.
Lebanese citizens have been suffering from tax increases and dire economic conditions in the heavily indebted country.
