Three years after the terrible Beirut port blast on August 4th, the victims’ families and survivors are still waiting for justice. The tragedy took many lives, but no one has been held responsible.
The families and survivors have come together to organize a march. This isn’t the first time; they march every year. They want to remember the people who died and support all the victims.
With every step, they show their determination to seek justice. They want to make sure no one forgets what happened.
The march will start at the Beirut Fire Brigade in Karantina at 4 pm. From there, they will walk to the Port of Beirut, getting there at 5:30 pm. This route has a special meaning, connecting places marked by the explosion.
This march is not just a protest. It’s a loud call for justice and a strong show of strength. The families and survivors promise not to stop until they get justice.
The Beirut blast changed the city, but it also brought people together. They are united in their sadness and determination. This march is their way of saying they won’t be quiet. They will honor those who died, and they will keep asking for justice, no matter how long it takes.
As they march, their steps and voices remind everyone of those who are gone. They are demanding justice, remembering the lost, and promising never to forget.
On August 2nd, the demonstrations began in a strong way. People threw red paint on the ground next to pictures of those wanted for investigation. They did this right in front of the Lebanese parliament. The red paint is a bold reminder of the pain and the need for justice.
The Beirut Port explosion on August 4, 2020, was a catastrophic event that resulted in over 244 deaths, thousands of injuries, and massive destruction across the city. An estimated $15 billion worth of damage was caused, leaving hundreds of thousands of people homeless.
