Someone photoshopped Martyrs Square statue to make one of the statues look like they’re disgusted from the smell (or maybe suffocating from the tear gas canisters) and joined the #YouStink protest. I think it’s pretty funny but I really hope that we won’t be having any martyrs in the upcoming protests.
There’s a big demonstration planned in Beirut on Saturday and we’ve witnessed the birth of 4 or 5 new movements this week which is not necessarily a good thing. It’s like everyone wants to start his own thing now and create a new hashtag because it’s cool and trending. I hope things will be organized and coordinated properly on Saturday to avoid more violence.
At the same time, there’s a protest taking place in New York on Saturday in solidarity with the Lebanese Youth “who have taken to the streets demanding their rights and ours in a modern, clean, and just Lebanese Republic”.
