Members of the Kataeb Party's youth wing clashed with police Thursday afternoon as they protested the ongoing waste dumping along the coast of Burj Hammoud. A group of the party's youth wing marched from Forum de Beyrouth to Burj Hammoud and demanded entry to the dump site. They were met at the entrance by members of the Internal Security Forces, who allowed a number of Kataeb members into the site. This is not the first protest held by the Kataeb in objection to plans presented by the Cabinet.In recent months, the Kataeb Party has expressed fears that the Burj Hammoud site will also impact the LINOR Project, which looks to develop green spaces, gardens, and coffee shops for the public between the Beirut Port and Marina Dbayeh.
