The totally not Amal person is saying protesters were dealing hashish, bcs we all know Amal absolutely does not deal in hashish. It's so transparently desperate. But it doesn't matter if they're right or not. Their force is the violence they unleash against peaceful protesters.

Another totally not Amal/Hezb person saying it's not Amal nor Hezbollah that sent them. Meanwhile, the not Amal/Hezb people are quite literally chanting pro-Nabih Berri chants on live TV.

Not a massacre obviously, but we can excuse Timour who was being personally targeted. Sharing this to show another angle of the Amal/Hezb people attacking protesters

"dancers, hashish, zaaraneh, drunkenness" - Amal/Hezb person now on LBC. Another saying there's too much chaos among protesters. Protesters were blocking the roads peacefully before Amal/Hezb attacked them to cause chaos.

Amal/Hezb person saying protesters were asking if soldiers are Shias before letting them. Needless to say, that never happened.

One Amal/Hezbollah person on LBC: "Allah, Nasrallah and no one else. Allah, Nabih Berri and no one else. Everyone else are 'like my shoes'" Another: "they're (protesters) smoking hashish. Men are fucking other men."

Protester explaining what happened. I was there yesterday and I can confirm that the roads were opened for those who wanted to pass. It's only the bridge that is closed, to prevent the government from passing.

Amal/Hezb said that they went down because they are opposed to roadblocks and want to go to work. That road is not the only road in or out. It's just one bridge.

It's been 20 min and still nothing from the security forces. They threw teargas at us when we were peacefully protesting. It's obvious for everyone to see.

Hezbollah/Amal man saying protesters were getting drunk and smoking hashish. Showing a video he got on WhatsApp. The irony is that both Amal/Hezbollah are in the hashish trade.

Amal and Hezbollah people keep on repeating the same thing: "why aren't you insulting Siniora (etc)?" Protesters have been insulting Siniora from day one. Bassil is the one who got the 'worst' insult.

Nasrallah is barely ever mentioned out of fear, and even that is too much for them. Berri is called a thief because that's what he is, and even that is too much of an insult. Nabih Berri has been speaker of parliament for my entire life.

Security forces now using teargas against Hezbollah and Amal. They got too close to government buildings, which seems to be security forces' only real red line (for now)

Only managed to upload it now because of my internet connection: this woman was beaten by the Hezbollah/Amal gang and her reaction is really powerful. She says that this is why we need to support public schools, so that children aren't forced to depend on sectarian leaders

This is a video that made the rounds, and here's a striking photo. I don't even hate these men. I just feel incredibly sad that so many people are so extremely dedicated to rich warlords despite their own economic misery. (I didn't take either)
