The Monday Market defied the Israeli occupation to stay open week after week, but an escalating trash crisis has brought it to its knees, protesters complained Tuesday in front of Nabatieh's Serail.On July 22, residents of the Nabatieh village of Kfour closed a trash disposal ground, forcing the governorate capital to cut back on garbage collection and open makeshift dumps.The Kfour disposal ground was supposed to be temporary, until a waste treatment plant could open in 2014, village residents said.The Nabatieh demonstrators said Hezbollah and Amal politicians were bickering over whose members would run and administer the plant. The Environment Ministry is in the middle of a yearlong plan to reorganize the country's waste sector and is currently considering four private consortium bids to manage the south and Nabatieh governorates.
