Posted on: October 28, 2020


How Lebanon maritime seashore were grabbed by private companies?

Not a stretch in Lebanon seashore from North to South is public anymore. We cannot swim or picnic on our seashore without paying dearly for private companies to enter and enjoy a fine day.

And all these private stealing of our seashore are illegal and still all successive government refrain from recovering the citizen rights and do Not receive any significant taxes from these illegal “properties”

Defending marine public property workshop

Priorities may change with the different circumstances the country is going through. But the needs and rights remain the same.

We learned from our history that when people are busy searching for safety (because of wars, civil wars, absence of government…), the corrupt steal our rights, our land, and our livelihoods.

We must always be ready to defend our rights at all times.

We must have general and contingency plans to respond to all attempts at all times.

Public space has always been coveted by many.

At a time when people are preoccupied with the COVID-19 pandemic, and suffer from financial problems, many work to try to get hold of what remains of our public property under the pretext of solving financial or other crises.

This is exactly what happened after the civil war, when Beirut was stolen from us, using the Solidere company of late Rafic Hariri.
