On This Day Last Month, The Revolution Began: Here Are The Highlights

It’s so hard to believe that it has been a full month (and two days, technically) since October 17th. Here’s a look at the highlights:

It all started with a pesky WhatsApp tax

Day two say protestors road blocks, burning tires, and protesting everywhere.

Protestors cleaned up streets.

And Saad asked for a #72Hour Break.

Which everyone made fun of relentlessly.

In solidarity with Lebanese revolution, protests erupted in London, New York, Montreal, Paris, and a dozen other places.

Protestors entered the Rest House Tyr (istira7at sour) hotel, destroying and burning the property down.

They stated that this resort was primarily owned by Randa Berri, wife of the Speaker of Parliament Nabih Berri.

Banks were closed, and have been pretty much closed since (aside from a couple of days).

Tripoli had a FULL ON party with a DJ and everything

Protestors sang Baby Shark to a kid who was scared

A guy chilled in a pool

Baalbak revolted with this fantastic dabke

Tripoli sang at the top of its lungs

Protestors blocked Jal El Dib bridge with cars.

The icon of the Lebanese revolution got married in Riad el Solh.

President Aoun broke his silence a week after protests began.

And people were not pleased with the outcome.

The human chain stretched across the country.

The Ring was turned into “Plaza” – and listed on airbnb.

Riad Salame said the economy is on the verge of collapse, then took it back.

Saad Hariri resigned from his position as Prime Minister.

And the horrific clashes took place on The Ring bridge…

Tripoli removed all political posters and flags.

People banged on pots, protested Eden Bay, and had a candlelight march

People had breakfast and took a dip at Zaituna Bay.

Our hearts broke for Alaa Abou Fakher and his family…

Protestors headed to Baabda, but couldn’t get through.

Aaaand we learned that they were considering Safadi for PM…
