I must say, Lebanese don’t lack any sense of humor even in their harshest times. Whether this one ensued from that characteristic of ours or it has another purpose, it really doesn’t matter. The point is: Someone actually took the effort to create a website with a countdown following MP Saad Hariri’s statement, giving his government 72 hours to instate solutions to the ongoing protests in Lebanon.
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.
