Tens of thousands of Lebanese are preparing for the big national protest against the government this Saturday

June 6, 2020

Thousands of Lebanese complete preparations for the massive protest that will take place in Beirut and other parts of the country this Saturday to denounce the government over the worsening living conditions.

The Army is on high alert from the start to monitor the development of concentrations that will begin around noon, starting with the main concentration in the center of the Lebanese capital.

The protest, which violates government restrictions on coronavirus control, aims to revive the street action launched in mid-October last year. Its goal will be to force the government set up earlier this year to fight corruption in the country and take urgent measures to restore the country’s destroyed economy.

Although another part of the protests called for the disarmament of Hezbollah’s powerful Iranian military-political movement, it is not believed that today’s marches will address this issue directly so as not to saturate its content.
