Rising cost of living is becoming increasingly burdensome for people

This is one of the poor’s daily subsistence places. The citizen may obtain the cheapest milk and cheese at this sort of establishment.
Despite this, many individuals are content with only one sort of bread.
Even these things are valued in dollars or their equivalent in Lebanese pounds, based on market value.
Approximately twenty days have passed since the price of the dollar decreased from thirty-three thousand pounds to around twenty thousand, yet pricing in most shops have stayed same.

The environment in front of the Ministry of Economy is quiet, its security elements are at ease, and no one is demonstrating here today.
However, its objective may be close to the protestors who left their imprints on the wall.
Writings that were not deleted by security agents, maybe because they were convinced of their authenticity.
The Minister of Economy does not answer to phone calls, indicating that it is uninterested in what is going on.

Except for the purchase of essential necessities by residents, there is no action in the marketplaces.

All residents’ pockets were scorched by price flames.
And the only way to put a stop to it is through strict economic measures.
