Feast your eyes on Rami Eid, an environmental activist who is staging a protest about climate change by spending three days ankle-deep in water in a glass cube on the Corniche, Beirut’s busy seaside thoroughfare. Follow him on his blog here, and check out +961’s photos here.
My hat goes off to the guy for his efforts, but didn’t any of his more publicity-savvy friends point out to him that bringing his entire entertainment system into the cube (TV, laptop, etc.) may put a small dent in his environmentalist’s street cred? I mean, while you’re at it, why not hook up a Sony Playstation, microwave, and air conditioner too? (I suppose the latter would deny him the pretext of strutting around shirt-less…)
Ok, enough teasing. Bravo, Rami!
