    Due to the worsening economic crisis, migrant workers in Lebanon are unable to transfer money to their families abroad. Their families rely on this money for survival. 
     

    “We have come across countless stories in recent weeks of families in rural areas of Ethiopia caught off-guard by the sudden interruption to their cash flow. Discontinued remittances have produced severe material consequences like food insecurity and a lack of access to education.”

    Mubarak Ibrahim, a Sudanese human rights activist, is under imminent threat of deportation to Sudan where he is at very high risk of detention, torture and death at the hands of the Sudanese authorities.

    This would be Mubarak’s second deportation to Sudan from Lebanon. His first deportation in 2016 resulted in his enforced disappearance, torture and a death sentence imposed upon him due to his opposition to the regime. A second deportation would likely be fatal.

    Anti-Racism Movement (ARM) has released a statement in support of the revolution where it offered its analysis of racism as a dividing tactic used by those in power to evade responsibility and accountability, and blame their failures on foreigners, both refugees and migrants. We stressed that justice is indivisible, and that this is a revolution of all the oppressed against all oppressors.

    In these exceptional circumstances, Anti-Racism Movement calls upon employers of migrant domestic workers to take simple measures that would help alleviate the impact of the economic crisis on that community. Even though we are well aware that the crisis affects everyone living in Lebanon today, migrant domestic workers remain among the most vulnerable communities, with salaries as low as $100/month in some cases.
