US Cities Enter Week 2 of Solidarity Protests for Lebanon - The961

US Cities Enter Week 2 of Solidarity Protests for Lebanon

And here is the list!

As Lebanon continues its 24/24 protests for days and nights across the country, the diaspora is as relentless to support the movement that has resurrected the homeland from years of submissiveness to injustice. These are the cities where our diaspora in the United States are holding their Week 2 of peaceful demonstrations. Please note that we will do our best to keep updating the list. Should you wish us to feature your protest's photos on our Instagram, tag @the961.

Organizers of protests who cannot find their events here listed, you may get in touch with Tina Chamoun who is coordinating with us for the protests in the US and Canada.
