Reflecting on its achievements and setbacks, the "You Stink" campaign vowed Monday to press on with street protests until its demands for elections, a redeveloped trash plan and public accountability measures are met.Activist Imad Bazzi said the movement's demands remained the same, and included Environment Minister Mohammad Machnouk's resignation, writing off municipalities' debts, and holding accountable the security forces who attacked protesters which could amount to the dismissal of Interior Minister Nouhad Machnouk.The incident occurred on Sept. 1 when You Stink activists protested inside the Environment Ministry to press for the resignation of Minister Mohammad Machnouk.Judge Nabil Wehbe of the Military Tribunal of Beirut released nine people arrested during the Aug. 22, 23, and 29 demonstrations Monday.
