These angry protests have been continuous for days as the value of the national currency remains in freefall, going from 10,000 L.L. to over 12,000 L.L. per USD in mere 2 weeks.
The Lebanese pound has lost more than 85% of its value and there is no indication of its freefall stopping, as of yet.
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.
