Apologies but CLe-matic has been cancelled!
A good alternative is the wonderful Xriss Jor performing on Sunday at CLe

The issue is not about facebook likes and popularity, I’m criticizing this campaign mainly because the idea behind it didn’t sound very applicable to me.

Morenito might be the most underrated restaurant in Gemmayze! It’s great that you featured it in your weekly 10 roundup.

So we shouldn’t support a recycling campaign in our garbage-infested country because it doesn’t have enough Facebook likes? Because it will help support poor Syrians that will sell our garbage for pennies? Because the phrase “lets start sorting” is copyrighted by some college students? Because it won’t solve a decades-old problem over night?

Rami, I enjoy your posts and I think you are absolutely right to ask questions. But I also think we have a responsibility to start contributing to solving our country’s problems and what better place to start then garbage? If the problem is publicity, wouldn’t the solution be to promote this initiative rather that shoot it down?
