Protest Logistics

Lebtivity, the calendar for events, is extensively sharing and promoting the cleanups happening every morning in Martyrs Square and Riad El Solh, and contributed in making a connection for Jal El Dib to create a cleanup group with Joanna Jleilaty.

Daily, many volunteers are seeing the event on Lebtivity and joining every morning.

Many contacts with media or people who wanted to help were made too and transferred to the people in charge.

Hello All,

First thank you to everyone that participated in the Human Chain it was truly a spectacle. But our work isn’t over, we need to make sure the whole of Lebanon and the world know how we stood in solidarity for our entire country in the face of adversity.

Below are a group of links to prominent news stories (in English and Arabic) that have been published as a result of the Human Chain. What we need you to do is the following:

1. Repost the stories on your social media handles (Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook)

2. Use the Hashtags #LebaneseHumanChain and #السلسلة_البشرية_اللبنانية

3. Tag @Humanchain.lebanon

4. Circulate this message to everyone you know (residents and expats)

By doing this we will be able to feed online traffic to those news stories so they become trending topics and in turn become more likely to appear in a google search about Lebanon. This will greatly help keep the conversation about our beloved country’s revolution alive, and show the world that we stand hand in hand in solidarity…literally
