Transportation Sector Goes on Strike Thursday

W300

The various land transport unions in Lebanon will go on strike on Thursday morning in protest against the rise in fuel prices.

The strike was supposed to be held last week, but it was postponed at the request of a ministerial committee headed by Prime Minister Najib Miqati, which was seeking to find a solution that would appease the drivers but to no avail.

Earlier on Wednesday, Lebanese University professors staged a sit-in on the road leading to the presidential palace in Baabda where a cabinet session was underway.

The demonstrators were demanding that the government grant part-time professors full-time contracts “as soon as possible”.

They lifted banners accusing the government of dealing lightly with their case, wondering "what barriers have been thwarting it from resolving the file."

This event is nothing but political attempt to raise money or to get paid off for some of the politicians, corruption and culture of mafiozism in a country with history of Hashish industry.
