May 1st is the Labor day "3id l Amal" in Lebanon! And this year in support to migrant workers, several NGOs and individual activists will celebrate this day by demanding migrant workers’ right for good working conditions, starting with the minimal right for at least one day off a week. 

The campaign initiated by @simby is called Twenty-Four-Seven and it highlights the fact that domestic migrant workers in Lebanon work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

 


These are the activities scheduled for the campaign:
