A number of activists, along with Sabaa party and Kataeb party staged a protest outside the Beirut Municipality building, to protests a plan to establish a waste incinerator. The protest comes during a meeting held by the municipal council.

In turn, MP Paula Yaacoubian said that “we are one people rejecting incinerators and we will be present in every region, in which they decide to build one.”

 

“Solutions should be presented by specialized people not businessmen,” she added.
