Foreign cleaners banned from Beirut swimming pools

“According some pool owners, clients would be disgusted to swim in a pool next to a black person”

On July 12, two activists from the Lebanese environmental, cultural, and social activist organisation IndyAct showed up at the gate of a private pool accompanied by a female volunteer from Madagascar and a camera hidden in a bag. The employee there asked the two men who the person accompanying them was; when they responded that she was their cleaner, he refused to let her in.
