The Dig Editorial Staff
The Dig is your student-run, student-edited, and student-published newspaper. We have fought hard to remain this way so we can serve as a platform for student voices, communal changes, and action. The current state of racial injustice both in America and in our own institution is unacceptable. The Dig stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and we are committed to using our platform to inspire action in any way possible by uplifting student voices.
Joy. That’s what I want everyone to feel at this moment. It is a big ask, and certainly one that is hard for many of us to do.

And we need to do something about it.

Unlike what mainstream media such as CNN or BBC are covering, the revolution was not started only because of the Whatsapp tax. Even though it is true that this tax received mass outrage from the citizens, this is not the only reason why the Lebanese people took to the streets. Their passion and unification stem from a much deeper, ongoing anger towards the corrupt government that have committed a continuous series of wrongdoings toward the people.
