#OccupyBeirut: Re-Imagining the City Since the October 2019 Protests - #احتلوا_بيروت: إعادة تخيّل المدينة منذ احتجاجات تشرين الأول / أكتوبر ٢٠١٩

The mobilisation cycle that started in Lebanon as of the 17th of October 2019 witnessed a widening of the geographies of protests: from squares, highways, main roads intersections, commercial banks, politician’s houses, government buildings, and police stations. In this infographic, we focus on the occupation by protestors of emblematic spaces, notably in the capital, Beirut. Abandoned and previously inaccessible buildings, in addition to privatised coasts, have been continuously reclaimed as public spaces.

What mobilises Lebanon? Focus on socio-economic demands - ما الذي يحرّك لبنان؟ إضاءة على المطالب الاقتصادية والاجتماعية

Protests have been ongoing in Lebanon since October 17 2019, in an unprecedented geographic spread, largely motivated by demands to access socio-economic rights, which are part and parcel of human rights. This infographic visualises these demands, shedding light on the role of civil society actors in mobilising on these issues throughout the years, and in creating and framing rights-based demands and discourses.
