Ruptly's drone captured thousands of protesters flooding the center of Beirut on Saturday night, as the “You Stink” demonstrations continued to grip the Lebanese capital. Saturday's protests mark a week since thousands of demonstrators rallied on Riyad Solh Square near the government palace to protest the city's ongoing waste disposal crisis, which has seen tons of rubbish piled up on the streets of the Lebanese capital. The You Stink campaign was launched after the Environment Ministry closed the Naameh landfill site on July 17 without providing an alternative for Beirut and its suburbs.
