Disclaimer: For those criticising the rest of us who weren’t present at the protest, do ask yourselves why weren’t you urself, especially those who actively criticize anything & anyone through pictures and statuses. Because that’s hypocrisy at its best and preach yourselves first.
The Revolution has started.
Protesters took the streets of downtown Beirut against the government this weekend. The drop that spilled for such outcome; the garbage spillover throughout the country. For once in the recent history of Lebanon people woke up and took guts in massively protesting against the government. While some were protesting peacefully, some thugs infiltrated the mass and the situation escalated to the destruction of public infrastructure.
Personally I do not blog post about politics nor will I. For accurate posts on the subject matter please do follow my dear friend’s blog, Blog Baladi.
Monday morning back to work. The traffic is more intense than ever. The reason? people driving slowly, scrutinizing the destroyed sites. My workplace being located in Downtown Beirut, I dropped my bag and laptop and took a stroll with a colleague towards the demonstration location.
The following are a few of the pictures taken. Special thanks to the Sukleen Team for cleaning after this mess.
Hoping that it is the last of such scenes to be seen.
Have a nice week everyone.
