Activists Friday reiterated their opposition to the government's plan to remove piles of garbage from makeshift dumps in Beirut and Mount Lebanon, calling for a mass protest in Downtown Beirut next week.A plan approved by Cabinet last month called for the establishment of two sanitary landfills, one in the northern district of Akkar and another in the Masnaa area of the Bekaa Valley.The plan, which was devised by Agriculture Minister Akram Chehayeb, would also see the reopening of the Naameh landfill for seven days, to relieve Beirut and Mount Lebanon from trash that has been mounting on the streets for two months, and would support robust waste recycling initiatives.
