Press Release: 9 Civil Society Organizations condemn decision to not renew residency permits for children of Migrant Workers
“The Anti-Racism Movement and Fi Chi Ghalat are organizing the 4th annual Workers’ Day Parade in celebration of Labor Day, demanding better legal protection for Domestic Workers in Lebanon suffering from the Kafala System.”
For the eighth year in a row, migrant domestic workers from many nations marched to demand their labor rights in Beirut.
“As these immigrants traveled across the Mediterranean and Atlantic to “Amirka” they were required to have an ethnic/national identity if they were to gain entry to the place that they hoped would make them a handsome sum of money and afford them new opportunities.”
There is no Labor Day without Migrant Domestic Workers
