Great News!!

This banner represents a moral compensation for the discrimination that Rahel went through last year, and is a symbolic victory for all people who have been discriminated against in this way, and for the struggle of migrant workers in general to be treated as human beings in Lebanon. It is also a great example of coordination and cooperation to stop such actions in beach resorts in general.

We think that this is a very positive step, and that the process must go on, not only for St George, but for all beaches and almost all tourist resorts that tend to discriminate based on nationality or class. Slowly, things are starting to change in Lebanon. And when the rules and norms change, people's perceptions and attitudes will tend to change much more quickly.
