The Wall

In downtown Beirut there is a quarter mile-long wall. On this wall are messages from the people of Lebanon to Rafik Hariri, the Syrian regime, and their fellow citizens. They are hand-written in permanent black marker. Most of the messages are in Arabic, naturally. Some are in English and French.
The wall was erected after Hariri was assassinated. It extends to his grave site across the street from Martyr’s Square. I first saw the wall during the revolution in April. It’s still there.
