"Abu Rakhoosa" returns to Martyrs Square from November 8


In view of the economic collapse in the Lebanon, the Abu Rakhoosa popular market returns on November 8 to Beirut Central District, downtown area, under the slogan, “Beirut… the right of the people that shall never die”. Recalling, that the bazaar was created years ago during the anti-government demonstrations protesting a class discourse that is trying to confiscate and monopolize public spaces. According to Al Akhbar daily, the above souk allows the Lebanese to purchase from a wide range of merchandise at relatively acceptable prices amid the extremely financial difficulties. Organizers, the newspaper wrote, appear to be strict in enforcing coronavirus prevention measures, more importantly wearing the protective masks. Abu Rakhoosa opens on November 8, from 10 am every day. (Al Akhbar, November 2, 2020)
