EDL workers protest in Beirut and south Lebanon
On 24 Nov 16, Electricite du Liban contract workers closed the company’s Beirut headquarters and several south Lebanon branches to customers in a protest aimed at pressuring the government to make them full-time employees. The workers in Beirut later opened the main gate to the company's employees but continued to block access to the customer service gate. Negotiations took place between Internal Security Forces and the workers to reach a deal on opening the company to customers.
