Members on behalf of several protest and student movements across Lebanon vowed on Thursday to keep protesting against corruption.Reading a joint statement from the represented groups at a press conference in Martyrs Square, they announced four goals that they plan to achieve: canceling the proposed tax measures, implementing the public sector salary scale as demanded by respective workers, an effective mechanism to fight corruption and money laundering, and the taxation of large companies and banks. In opposition to Parliament's proposed tax measures to fund a public sector wage hike, protest movements, professional syndicates, and some political parties have protested almost daily.
