Yesterday, they walked bravely demanding to be freed from a form of slavery known as the “kafala” system.
This time they did not hide their faces, but went out on the streets carrying their flags and singing songs from their respective countries; walking proudly and lending color to the streets of Beirut, rejecting discrimination and demanding laws to protect them.
We thank all of these women who have made Workers’ Day an historic day, and have shown to the world that freedom is taken, not given.
