The Army pushed the protesters out of the ministries. They beat people in the streets almost at random. Since then the protests have continued but at a lower level of intensity. Over the last week or so protests have continued outside government buildings. Meanwhile across the city projects to support people who lost their homes are growing. Groups like Food not Bombs and the Lebanese Red Cross are working in the north of the city which is badly damaged. People are still angry but there have not been large riots since the first few days of protests. The footage below documents police recapture of buildings, brutality, and recent videos of the protests.
