#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.

Abandoned and previously inaccessible buildings, in addition to privatised coasts, have been continuously reclaimed as public spaces.
