Four days after the deadly explosion, Lebanese people gathered in a massive protest in Martyr’s Square. Countless people are now homeless after the blast destroyed their homes and took with it all their personal belongings. The only thing people have left is their ability to demand change. Thousands of protesters made their way to the revolution’s square in Beirut to express rage, disappointment, and call to topple the government. However, the security authorities are still trying to contain the revolution in any way possible. They are using tear gas, blocking the protester’s path, and even using physical force if they have to. Despite this, the Lebanese, victims of decades of corruption in the government, continue to revolt. People are back on the streets protesting against the political establishment #Beirut #لبنان_ينتفض # pic.twitter.com/754aYqBBd9— Dalal Mawadدلال معوض (@dalalmawad) August 8, 2020 View this post on Instagram So many people are already here!
