The "You Stink" movement has planned a protest in Beirut on Friday, May 17, to denounce the draft 2019 austerity budget. The protest is slated to take place from 13:30 to 16:00 (local time) at Riad El Solh Square to coincide with the Council of Ministers' final session on the proposed budget.
A heightened security presence and localized traffic disruptions are to be expected near the demonstration site.
Individuals in Beirut are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all demonstrations and protests as a precaution, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
