Activists Saturday rallied in Beirut's coastal area of Dalieh to celebrate the release of all people who were detained during the anti-government protests of the past few weeks.Protesters affiliated with the Legal Agenda, the Civil Campaign to Protect Dalieh and other groups gathered at the once-popular hang out spot, located across from Raouche's pigeon rock, also demanded the property be reopened to the public. A statement read by the Dalieh campaign called for holding Interior Minister Nouhad Machnouk responsible for the attacks on protesters by Internal Security Forces, and the launching of an independent investigation to hold accountable those who provided cover for police in those attacks.In September, activists held a protest in Beirut's Zaitunay Bay, demanding public space be respected and not infringed upon by private developers.
