Protesters are expected to join marches this weekend to call for a halt to the Fouad Boutros Highway project, which activists say will destroy historic buildings. Several heritage groups and other NGOs are protesting the project, which will see a new 1.3-km road link Ashrafieh with the Charles Helou motorway. The marches take place on Saturday at 3 p.m., starting on Mar Mikhael street near EDL, and Sunday at 11 a.m. in Rmeil near the Maronite Archbishopric of Ashrafieh. [DailyStar]
