Stench in Beirut Streets Fuels 'You Stink' Government Protests
The "You Stink" campaign has mobilized against the government's failure to solve a garbage disposal crisis, bringing thousands of people onto the streets in protests.
Protesters start a fire during a protest against corruption and against the government's failure to resolve a crisis over rubbish disposal, in front of the government palace in Beirut, Lebanon, August 25, 2015. Lebanon's cabinet held an emergency meeting on Tuesday in its newly fortified headquarters after protests over trash collection spilled over into street violence and calls for the feuding government to resign.
