The protests that started in Beirut and across Lebanon on Thursday are spreading exponentially across the world. After Canada, the United States, Europe, and Australia this weekend, it is the Lebanese diaspora in Baghdad that will be holding their manifestation of solidarity on Monday, October 21st.
It remains that the price has been too heavy on the citizens, a price that it is not on them to pay. Whatever the causes and reasons, more issues are being raised now by the Lebanese protestors around the world; all of which could be briefed in one main headline: The right for all Lebanese men and women to live with dignity.
Our team works tirelessly to ensure Lebanese people have a reliable alternative to the politically-backed media outlets with their heavily-funded and dangerous propaganda machines. We've been detained, faced nonstop cyber attacks, censorship, attempted kidnapping, physical intimidation, and frivolous lawsuits draining our resources.
