The Bekaa branches of Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) have been dumping their waste and rubbish on the river banks of the Litani.
The Litani River Authority (LRA) announced through their official account on Twitter that KFC, where the cost of one meal would be equivalent to the Lebanese minimum wage, has been dumping all of the waste that is not needed from its branches on the banks of the Litani River.
The LRA also announced that it will be taking serious measures against KFC and urged all Lebanese citizens to boycott the international restaurant chain because it is polluting our rivers.
The Litani River has been an epicenter for environmental problems and pollution due to decades of industrial pollution from factories neglected sewage systems, chemicals from pesticides and fertilizers, and the disposal of waste.
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.
