This footage was shared today on طلعت ريحتكم’s Facebook page prior to their “Final Warning” demonstration on Saturday at 4pm. Lebanon’s trash collection crisis is now in its eight month with still no resolution in sight.

The footage is quite scary and shows the severity of the garbage crisis in Lebanon, yet I believe spreading it online is more efficient than planning demonstrations at this point. Moreover, I think activists should focus more on encouraging recycling initiatives all over Lebanon and work with NGOs to raise awareness and implement solutions. A lot of municipalities have already begun recycling and it’s going great for them.

On another note, I don’t think YouStink should have linked the video below to the “Rise Above Lebanon” tourism video because despite everything that’s happening, there’s nothing wrong in showcasing the beauty of our country and we should stay supportive of such positive initiatives.

YouStink’s demo is on Saturday at 4 pm at Sassine Square for those who want to join.
