Buttigieg’s work in Iraq and Afghanistan is extremely relevant and if you give me the names of the companies McKinsey was involved in privatizing, I’ll tell you the oligarch who bought them

If on the one hand the 2020 bondholders received their principal, and on the other hand we β€˜re begging for international aid to meet our basic requirements, then who’s going to bear the brunt of USD shortage going into 2020? βœ‚οΈ

Crystal clear from , on politicians who also have stakes in banks that bought govt debt: β€œYou bankrupted the state, built up profits in your banks, and your banks have now barred us from accessing our money.”

Bassil using the Civil War scare card again, 10 days after the ruling parties ignited sectarian clashes among each other in the country. Again and again, a Civil War is a POLITICAL DECISION taken by POLITICAL PARTIES for POLITICAL PURPOSES. Nothing to do with the revolution.

Many banks around Beirut targeted last night: "give me back my money." Banks've been applying informal weekly withdrawal caps (some as little as $200 or $50 if withdrawing abroad). Larger withdrawals by small depositors require justification & proof.

Well. It’s sad and strange to see a cohort of journalists leaveβ€”again. This time, the paper let go. Protesting issues with the paper and their colleague’s dismissal, folks such as and left, too.

At a conference in Rome listening to Gebran Bassil talk about how Lebanon's leaders have failed the public. Amazing how the country's entire political class talks as if it had no role in causing this situation πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

All the support to the 's reporters and editors who have been doing amazing work, relentlessly covering the protests day and night without getting paid despite being owned by Hariri, a billionaire.

What is the point of a credit card if you can't use it? What is the point of a peg if no one is using it? And what is the point of a Bank if it doesn't give you back your own money?

Timour was the only journo in Lebanon granting regular coverage to the plight faced by Ethiopian domestic workers in that country. It got him sued. He went months without pay at the . He resigned after the paper dismissed a striking journalist. A man of principles.

LF will not name a Prime Minister next week. If the FM eventually do the same (and give up Khatib at the last minute), it would suddenly transfer all responsibilities to March 8 parties. Everyone probably has a plan B for Monday. Revolution taught ruling parties to prepare..
