A group of members from civil society gathered in Beirut's Riad al-Solh Square on Sunday to protest the government's adoption of plans to use waste incinerators across the country."We hold the Beirut municipality, its mayor, the deputy mayor and 22 of its members responsible for the decision to use incinerators," one protester said in a televised broadcast from the demonstration. She added that a lawsuit would be filed if this decision was not revoked by the Beirut municipality. Demonstrators also pointed the finger at Cabinet for passing a decision that would permit the use of incinerators across the country.
