Leaded/Unleaded: The State Unleashed
The Film:  
LEADED/UNLEADED: The State Unleashed (Lebanon), 2004, 40 mins. (Arabic w/English subtitles).

Leaded/Unleaded documents the May 2004 labour demonstrations in the poorest neighbourhoods of Beirut that were violently repressed by the army. There has been little focus on the perpetual economic crisis in Lebanon, where upwards of 40% of the countryís population lives below the poverty line. Many link the current economic crisis to ex-prime minister Rafik Haririís neo-liberal economic policies in post-war Lebanon. (Hariri was murdered in a bomb-blast in downtown Beirut on February 14th 2004.)
