Posting a photo of the Lebanese flag, Super Star Ragheb Alama endorsed through his Twitter account the popular demonstrations that erupted several days ago in Lebanon, rejecting the taxes imposed by the government, demanding the overthrow of the regime and the departure of all politicians, and asking the Lord not to abandon the sky of Lebanon.

Singer Maya Diab decided to take to the streets yesterday, where she participated in the demonstrations in Jal El Dib area and delivered a speech in support of the demonstrators addressed to officials in Lebanon, saying: "We are humiliated."

Saad Ramadan also showed his solidarity with the people saying: what are you and me ... what are you ... who taught us to be protesters ...

Singer Wael Jassar, who participated in a demonstration in downtown Beirut with his wife Mirai, delivered a speech in which he stressed that the people are hungry and all share the same pain.

Many artists such as Wael Kfoury and Nawal Al Zoghbi, showed their support on social media without participating in the protests.

The same is true with actress Cyrine Abdel Nour, who had supported her country and his people since the first day of the demonstrations through several videos on her pages on Social Media.

Najwa Karam also published several tweets on Twitter since the start of the demonstrations, the latest: "sweeter than the sweetest unity

 With all sects forming our unity ..

 With all our rights and demands ..

 We want to live in peace…

 We are tired of fear…

 #Lebanon ".
