Last night’s #YouStink protest in Downtown Beirut escalated beyond expectations. Internal Security Forces (ISF) responded violently to the peaceful protests using water cannons, teargas, batons, rubber bullets, as well as live ammunition. As protestors gathered near the Riad El Solh statue, the ISF set up barricades, including electric fences to prevent protestors from marching to the parliament building.
After the violence, this is what Downtown Beirut looked like today at 7 AM. The photos were taken this morning by Beirut Syndrome staff.
The protests will commence on Tuesday, demanding accountability for the violence that took place last night. Join us.
All set! Thanks!
