wall2Lebanon’s mounting garbage problem sparks violent protests in Beirut. The rotting garbage has been piling up on the streets of Lebanon’s capital city, Beirut, for one month and people are at their breaking point. Beirut’s main landfill was closed more than a month ago, and authorities have yet to come to an agreement on how to deal with the mounting trash.

So, on Wednesday, protesters took to the streets demanding a solution, and police responded with water cannons. And in order to prevent protesters from entering government buildings, they built a cement wall.
