THERE This HOW – cynical videos, interactive maps of denouncing bribes … an NGO based in Beirut attacks the corruption poisoning the country with a touch of provocation. The goal announced: change the system and bring down the big fish.

The name of the NGO surprising at first.. “Sakker Dekkene el” or “close the store.” It is not a petition against a general power that disturbs a neighborhood but a non-governmental organization in Lebanon, ranked 36th most corrupt country in the world according to Transparency International.

Its co-founder, Abdo Medlej, says in the video interview his desire to make things happen, to “change the system” and to address “the big fish” rather than this or that official guilty of soliciting or accepting a few tickets in exchange for a service.
