When Lebanese lawyer Maha al-Yafi made a Facebook post at the start of the uprising offering to defend for free any person wrongfully fired during the protests, she got dozens of requests for legal advice.There are currently no official numbers for cases of dismissals directly or indirectly resulting from the protests.Once the political situation becomes clearer, Yafi said she would be able to provide pro bono legal assistance.Like Yafi, many other legal professionals have been taking personal initiatives to help Lebanese citizens who have received backlash for attending the demonstrations.Since the beginning of the protest, lawyers from across the country have been congregating under a tent in Martyrs' Square to support those affected and provide them with free legal advice.Imad Ammar, 37, a trainee lawyer, estimated that 50 to 100 people had been coming to the tent for legal advice every day, many for employment and salary issues stemming from the protests.
