Creative acts of resistance are springing up in Lebanon in direct response to the increase of censorship in the country, reported Giedre Steikunaite in New Internationalist, while Tarek Chemaly wrote in Reorient:

“Talk about the censorship in Lebanon is looming large these days, after a string of issues which took center stage on the Internet, via social media.”
