A few members from the You Stink campaign Thursday protested near the ministries of finance and telecommunications to demand the release of hundreds of millions of dollars owed to municipalities.The protest, which took place on Banks Street in Downtown Beirut, was the second in a series of actions planned for this week to pressure the government to end the five month trash crisis. The demonstration Thursday came a day after a similar protest was organized by the group outside Beirut's Justice Palace, where the protesters demanded Financial Prosecutor Ali Ibrahim look into corruption cases linked to a number of politicians.
