Lebanese Red Cross
On Thursday 17th of October 2019, calls to protest were made on various social networks. The call to protests came as the government discussed hiking taxes and introducing new fees, including a 0.20 levy per day for WhatsApp calls. Protesters quickly responded to the requests and started by blocking major roads and highways in different parts of the country. Later on, activists called protesters to head to Beirut, Tripoli, Tyre and many other areas all over the countries. A huge number of protesters started protesting for 2 weeks in the whole country.
