A roadblock made of garbage bins during a general strike, in Beirut, Lebanon, 17 June 2021. The strike was called by the General Labor Union in all Lebanese governorates to protest against the country’s political and economic crisis amid constant power cuts, the high cost of living and the low purchasing power of the Lebanese pound, as well as the failure of political leaders to form a government after months of deadlock.
