In remembrance of the victims whose lives were taken on August 4th, 2020 by the Beirut Port explosion, 204 red hearts were placed in different cities around the world.
The names of the victims were placed on hundreds of hearts and planted in Paris, Washington, Ohio, California, Michigan, and New York.
Organized by various groups of the Lebanese diaspora in different locations in the United States and Europe, the initiative comes to demand the follow-up and continuation of the investigation and to hold those involved accountable.
Recently, the state has been granting national awards here and there, yet no effort whatsoever for an official memorial to the victims.
Say their names.
