Lebanese migrant workers celebrate despite turmoil

A celebration of solidarity and resilience held for migrant workers in Beirut, amid economic crisis and political turmoil.

BEIRUT — The Migrant Community Center (MCC), a project of the Anti-Racism Movement, which runs a series of safe spaces around Lebanon tailored to migrant workers, held a day of festivities in Beirut this week, amid a worsening economic crisis and months of protests.

Art, traditional dances, scathing satirical skits and events for kids were held for Lebanon’s foreign workers on Dec. 15, only a few days before International Migrants Day.
