For the past two years, the Lebanese organized countless sit-ins and marches to call for a transparent probe into the blast, however, the Lebanese authorities remain deaf to the people’s rightful demands.

Last year, people swept Beirut, as thousands of protesters gathered to remind the ruling body of the mass murder awaiting judicial action. Lebanese in the diaspora also took the streets of their cities to raise their voices.
