On 14 March 2005 an estimated 1 million Lebanese took to the streets concentrated in Martyrs' Square, Beirut primarily to protest Syrian military occupation of Lebanon and Syrian intelligence and political domination of Lebanon since 1976. The mass mobilization was triggered by widespread unrest following accusations of Syrian involvement in the 14 February 2005 assassination of Lebanese Prime Minister Rafic Hariri.
The New Opinion Workshop (NOW) was created to provide news reports and opinion pieces as well as a digest of relevant news and opinion from a variety of media outlets. It aims to enable Lebanese citizens and the Lebanese diaspora to stay informed on a wide range of issues.
NOW News is the redesigned website that was known as "NOW Lebanon".[6] The change came in late 2012 as the site’s publisher decided to widen the scope of coverage to include the wider Middle East region.
NOW News has a large online readership mainly from the United States, Canada, European Union, and Australia.
Due to financial crisis NOW website was put off air since December 2017.[citation needed]
