Protesters seeking recognition of civil marriages took to the streets in Beruit Sunday to make their voices heard.
Lebanon is divided between Christianity and Islam, making inter-religious couples decide whether they will marry in a church or a mosque. The protest sought to gain civil marriages, ridding the country of religious tugs-of-war.
The "divisive sectarian system," as BBC reports, has been the status quo since the 15-year-long civil war in Lebanon, starting in 1975.
More than 2,000 protesters joined in on the march.
Al-Jazeera reports that social networking sites were utilized to organize the event.
Said Shaito, one of the march's organizers said, "We are for citizenship, which is being Lebanese, not Muslim or Christian. We want people to talk about it, to create a public debate in Lebanon."
