On Tuesday 18th of December, International Migrants Day, Insan Association, Anti-Racism Movement and Kafa (Enough) Violence and Exploitation, collaborated with migrant domestic workers in Lebanon to document their dreams for a more just society where their voices are heard and their rights are protected by law. This video will help you to understand the slavery-like conditions that they are currently subjected to under the sponsorship system.
The sponsorship system is a set of practices and regulations that legally ties migrant domestic workers to one employer for their residence and work permits for the duration of their contract. The sponsorship system creates dependency and a master/slave relationship between the domestic workers and their employers and is unjust for everyone.
