Green Party forms in Lebanon

This article from the Lebanon Daily Star heralds the arrival of a new political party in Lebanon: the Green Party. While the Daily Star presents a grim view of Lebanon’s political climate, the article also expresses hope that the Greens can get past traditional sectarian politics to solve some pressing problems. Lebanon’s forests are disappearing at a breakneck pace and its drinking water is dangerously polluted, to name just a couple of dire environmental situations facing the country.

The Green Party is a welcome addition to the political arena in Lebanon

I wish them the best of luck in their efforts to change Lebanese politics and save their country’s beautiful environment.
