The You Stink activist group is holding a “Last Warning” demonstration from Sassine Square to Riyadh Solh Square on March 12 at 4 pm. The group called for the demonstration in a newly released parody video of the Ministry of Tourism’s “Rise Above Lebanon” called “Rise Above: Lebanon’s Political Garbage.”

The scandalous video footage shows the rivers and mountains of trash that have accumulated all over Lebanon since July 2015, when the garbage crisis began, and are hidden from sight. The Lebanese government’s negligence has created countless problems, including increase in air and water pollution, an indescribable stench and has resulted in a spike in respiratory diseases, according to an article by the Guardian

 

 

And despite all the campaigns that emerged as a result of the garbage crisis, nothing was accomplished. The popular movements have been, for the most part, MIA (missing in action) since late August. The government has issued a couple of reports claiming that Russia and Sierra Leone have agreed to accept Lebanon's trash, both reports were denied by the respective countries. 

 

 

We are all being played for fools by the Lebanese government... when will the Lebanese awaken from their apathetic slumber??
