One positive byproduct of the economic crisis may well be a decrease in the number of domestic workers (who come to Lebanon under the awful kafala system) due to the inability of many families/employers to pay them in USD.

The start of the rain season (and ensuing havoc on the streets) is all it takes to remind us of the failure of the political establishment in and the emptiness of all their (past and future) promises.

Resignation is the ultimate act of protest against injustice in modern-day employment. Proud of and all the journalists at the Daily Star.

A number of my Daily Star colleagues and I are on strike today over the non-payment of our wages (some for 6+ months) and what we see as the arbitrary dismissal of our colleague for his role in organizing a strike that most staff were planning together.

Some personal news. Today I was let go from my job at The Daily Star, my home for almost four years. I had been helping organize a strike because workers are owed up to half a year's salary — despite the paper being owned by Lebanon's billionaire prime minister.

So it took an Egyptian comedian to point out that the sketch by the shit Lebanese 'comedian' mocking migrant domestic workers was racist. Thanks Bassem and f you for thinking this was acceptable. At least seven migrant workers died in the past month

الانتحار هو منتهى الهشاشة والاستغلال ونتاجها الحتمي. امس كنا نحصي العاملات الأجنبيات اللواتي ينتحرن على مذبح الهشاشة والاستغلال. اليوم ها هي العمالة اللبنانية تنتحر على المذبح نفسه.

I've authored two reports for showing how subpar medical care is linked to dozens of deaths in ICE detention. What "values" could possibly claim to have if they allow it to recommend that implement cuts to its already neglectful medical care?

Read the call by 129 Israeli & Jewish scholars, many of them specialists in anti-semitism and Jewish and Holocaust history, not to adopt the IHRA definition: "the association of anti-Zionism with anti-Semitism is fundamentally wrong."

The news coming of out of is heartbreaking. People taking their own lives because they are in debt, they can't give pocket money to their children, they can't take out their money from the bank... no words, just pain and anger.

دراسة "انفو برو" تقدر عدد الأشخاص الذين فقدوا عملهم بشكل دائم او مؤقت منذ بداية الأزمة الاقتصادية في بحوالي ١٦٠،٠٠٠ نتائج ذلك فقر وعوز، اكتئاب، انتحار. هذا ما حدث في اليونان بعد الانهيار وهذا ما بدأت عوارضه تظهر في لبنان. هل يتعظ البعض ويتراجعون لإنقاذنا من انتحار جماعي؟
