People in Lebanon and other countries are going on shopping frenzies in fear of products disappearing from supermarkets due to the coronavirus situation.
As for banks, well, it doesn’t need much explanation… “Bank madness” among the Lebanese is not even a new occurrence. The rivalry between banks and the people goes back to the last third of 2019 and has not subsided ever since.
So far, 2020 has been internationally perceived as a disastrous year and a terrible start for the new decade.
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. Financial support from our readers keeps us fighting on your behalf. If you are financially able, please consider supporting The961's work. Support The961. Make a contribution now.
