Lebanon’s struggle to lift subsidies on food items is ironic as some will argue Lebanese are not benefitting largely from the government’s support anyway.
Subsidized goods are not the only Lebanese products crossing the borders incognito. The recent scandal of the smuggling of drugs to Saudi Arabia is still making the headlines, exposing the extent of negligence of those governing the country.
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.
