Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Lebanon sectarian politics: Small protest marks two-year movement calling for its end” – below is their description.

A small group of people in Lebanon have protested about the country’s continuing sectarian policies – two years after widespread demonstrations denounced its deep political schisms.

It comes after seven people were killed on Thursday during clashes between different factions in Beirut over last year’s enormous blast at the capital’s port.

But these protests appear to have got the Lebanese nowhere, even as the economy grinds to a near-halt.

Al Jazeera’s Bernard Smith has more from Beirut, Lebanon.
