The spiraling situation in Lebanon has forced people back onto the streets. Crowds of protesters across the country have been expressing their anger over the depreciation of the Lira exchange rate, which exceeded 10,000 LBP against the dollar on the black market, dramatically increasing the severity of the living conditions.
People across the country have been closing roads and highways for several days now, in a desperate attempt to get the ruling officials to take some serious constructive actions as the country continues to collapse.
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.
