Hundreds of protesters took to the streets across Lebanon against corruption and oligarchy in the country, grappled by a massive economic crisis after the 2020 explosion of a plant which resulted in a nationwide movement being formed against the government. Protesters lit barricades and blocked roads, causing as much disruption as possible.
Lebanese demonstrators gathered at several sites across the country to decry state repression against activists and incompetence in handling the nation’s recent crisis of hyperinflation and soaring gas prices. Protesters blocked roads with flaming tires and set the entrance of the Ministry of the Economy on fire.
A special march was planned for Day 136 of the Louisville Protests on the 10th of October, marching through the center of Louisville to commemorate the murder of Breonna Taylor and its consequences across the world. Many took the chance to condemn the information found showing that the grand jury was not presented with murder charges upon which to indict the officers involved in her murder.
