Arrests in Time of Revolution: Beatings, Harassment, and Torture

In this video, we follow the detailed stories of 3 protesters from the moment they were arrested to the moment they were released. They talk about the constant hostility, threats, and violence inflicted on them by internal security forces. From beating people who were already passed out to death and rape threats, it’s something out of a horror movie.

With Legal Agenda offering us a wider perspective, we also learn that around 900 protesters were arrested in Lebanon during the past four months.
