protestsThe Syndicate Coordination Committee in Lebanon organized a protest Wednesday that headed towards the Grand Serail in Down Town Beirut and demanded that a new salary scale be referred to the Lebanese parliament.

The protest took off from the Barbir region to the Grand Serail, as participants raised banners saying: “We will not end the open strike until the salary scale is referred to the Parliament without any delay or neglect.”

Another banner said “fund the salary scale from wasted money and corruption…”

 For his part, Head of the SCC Hanna Gharib said that “our movement today is not the climax, but a direct indication that they must understand well.”

Gharib added: “This movement is the beginning of the starved people’s uprising in Lebanon,” and called for “referring the salary scale in accordance to the agreement.”

He warned of manipulating with teachers’ rights, saying: “Respect your signatures and act responsibly so that Lebanon would have officials up to the Lebanese people’s standards”.
