It’s been nearly a year since the petition against the Fouad Boutros highway was launched. It gained 3000 signatures in a few weeks and contributed to the general outcry against this insane project.
Since then, the campaign has made some very good progress. The project has been dramatically slowed down, the Municipality of Beirut and CDR were obliged to ask for an independent Environmental Impact Study and much of the technical, financial, legal and administrative mechanisms are today frozen. We found support in unlikely places, even within various ministries and state institutions.
But we are never safe from a negative change of turns and we must remain vigilant. Our team, the Civil Coalition Against the Fouad Boutros Project, keeps working, sometimes silently, sometimes publicly, always ready to react to any wrong action or decision.
But the support of the general public, of you citizens and city dwellers, remains a pilar of our fight. This is why we are re-launching this petition, in order to show that popular refusal of the Fouad Boutros Highway has not diminised.
So please, SIGN AND KEEP SHARING THIS PETITION
