Thousands of Lebanese protested on Saturday, August 29 in Downtown Beirut, Lebanon.
The protesters vowed to escalate their measures next week if the state failed to meet their demands within 72 hours.
The protests started in August 17, 2015, pressing the government to find a solution for the garbage crisis. Soon the protests turned into demands by the “You Stink” movement and its supporters for a change of Lebanon’s leadership.
‘You Stink’ is also pressing the State Financial Prosecutor to pursue a corruption investigation of the country’s waste management sector, as well.
The campaign demands the Lebanese cabinet decision to transfer waste management authority to municipalities and hand over state money owed to them.
On Sunday, August 23, demonstrations turned violent, as police fired tear gas and hoses at thousands of protesters gathered in front of the office of Prime Minister Tammam Salam.
