AUB students and activists interrupted a lecture by the World Bank’s Vice President to protest against the Bisri Dam. I wrote about this topic a month ago and was curious as to why the World Bank is lobbying so hard in favor of this dam and what’s in it for him. I get it they’re giving us a loan but they seem to be more adamant to having this dam built than our own politicians, which is weird.
Personally, I join my voice to these students in refusing this dam and the way this whole file is being handled. You can read why [here].
