ONN – LIVE: Lebanese Protesters Call For Government To Resign Over Beirut Explosions
Ruptly is live from Beirut’s Martyrs’ Square on Saturday, August 8, as protesters demand the resignation of the country’s government which they blame for Tuesday’s port explosions.
The blasts are thought to have been caused by the still unexplained ignition of 2,750 tonnes of ammonium nitrate, a highly explosive chemical material which was reportedly stored without precautionary measures at the port, according to Lebanese Prime Minister Hassan Diab.
President Michel Aoun was reported as telling local media on Friday that the investigation into the explosions would not rule out the possibility of external interference through a rocket or bomb or other act.
A two-week state of emergency has been enacted by the Lebanese government while the country’s health minister has reportedly said that over 150 people have been killed, with around 5,000 injured.
Both figures are set to rise as the search for survivors continues amid the rubble.
Note from Zennie62Media and Oakland news Now: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland news Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
