Activist video targets anti-refugee sentiment

Daily Star

Frustrated with friends, neighbors and politicians blaming the country’s problems on Syrian refugees, a group of Lebanese activists have created a video in response to what they see as growing anti-refugee sentiment.

“Lebanon cannot handle all these Syrian refugees,” says a young woman, staring wide-eyed into the camera. “Yeah right, because it opened the hotels to them for free,” she adds sarcastically.

The woman is one of several activists who appear in a video posted online this week by the Beirut-based Anti-Racism Movement, intended to highlight what they see as flawed logic.
