Racist resorts outed again

Friday, 13 July, 2012

Following their successful hit on the St George Yacht Club & Marina last month, the Lebanese Anti-Racism Movement (ARM) has released a follow-up in which they out 10 very well-known beach and pool resorts for their unabashedly racist policies.

One
by one, resort employees inform the ARM by telephone that, while
migrant domestic workers may be allowed to enter their establishments,
they may not swim. Particularly galling is the exasperated tone in which
many of them say this, as though the callers were asking to do
something that any upstanding person would know is obviously
unacceptable.

The group has vowed to continue its activism until
it “compile[s] a comprehensive list of violators”. As before, if you
want to assist their efforts, you can: 1) call the “tourism police” on
1735; 2) email the ARM at antiracismlb@gmail.com; and/or 3) contact them via their Facebook page.
