LEBANON – “It’s not enough.” Hind Nehme, a Lebanese protester, shares her feelings after learning of the government’s resignation. In the wake of the explosions that devastated Beirut, Lebanon, many protesters held the government accountable. Faced with the anger of the population, the Lebanese Prime Minister, Hassan Diab, announced, this Monday, August 10, the resignation of his cabinet.
But that’s not enough for the protesters as you can see in the video at the top of the article. “We want those responsible for the explosions and everything that has happened in the last 30 years to accept the consequences of their actions,” says Hind Nehme.
The protesters blame the government for corruption and negligence. This, for example, has not yet explained the presence of 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate in the center of Beirut.
