Three main marches will take place in Beirut on the first anniversary of the August 4 explosion on Wednesday.
The marches will start at three separate points and follow different itineraries before meeting at the Lebanese Emigrant Statue.
Participants will gather at 3:30 PM and depart together at 3:45 PM. Here are the itineraries:
The first march will depart from the Beirut Fire Brigade in Karantina and pass through the Pierre Gemayyel-Armenia Street intersection toward the Mar Mikhael neighborhood, then to Electricité du Liban before arriving at the Lebanese Emigrant Statue.
The second march will start from Sassine Square and head toward Lebanese Hospital Geitaoui, continue toward Saint Georges Hospital University Medical Center, Electricité du Liban, and, finally, the Lebanese Emigrant Statue.
The third march will depart from Saint George Bay toward the headquarters of Annahar, pass by the Mohammad Al-Amine Mosque to the Gemmayze neighborhood, then by Electricité du Liban to meet the other two at the Lebanese Emigrant Statue.
After forming at the statue for a moment of silence, the final march will depart toward the Lebanese Parliament as a final destination, at 6:30 PM.
Notably, the families of August 4 victims have planned a separate march that will involve prayers and religious ceremonies at the Port of Beirut. The schedule is available here.
