Several Protests & Roadblocks Are Taking Place Now In Lebanon

Protesters are setting up roadblocks and calling on the people to hit the streets as living conditions in Lebanon rapidly deteriorate.

While the roadblock in front of Al-Amine Mosque in Beirut was reopened, another roadblock was set up at the Burj el-Ghazal crossroad, and in front of Annahar building in downtown.

The call to hit the street came yesterday May 25th as a result of the continuous rise in the USD to Lebanese Lira exchange rate.

The rate reached LBP 35,650 per dollar earlier today, setting up a new all-time high.

As the roadblocks continue, bakery owners are also protesting in front of the Ministry of Economy, while the health sector workers are protesting in front of the Central Bank.

Taxi drivers set a roadblock in front of the Ministry of Interior and Municipalities. Some of the drivers are playing music and dancing dabke on the Ring Bridge, recalling the days of the Revolution.

Further intel speculates of possible roadblocks to be set up in Saida where the electricity and water have been cut off for the last three days. Nabatieh, in the south, has also been without electricity for the past 5 days.

In the meantime, the Banks continue to withhold the depositors’ money, while the government continues to fail to provide for citizens’ basic necessities.
