Beirut governor issued a memo yesterday requesting that all volunteering organizations obtain a permission from the army’s emergency room, and prohibiting those without a permit from entering the affected areas by the blast. At a time where every aspect of the response to this deadly explosion had been volunteer-led, the Lebanese authorities are cracking down on volunteers and organizations.

This decision comes two days after the parliament approved an outrageous and unjustified state of emergency, as they keep looking for new ways to suppress resurgent protests.
