Palestinians from Syria Rally Outside of Canadian Embassy in Beirut

Dozens of Palestinian refugees from Syria rallied outside of the Canadian embassy in Beirut to push for their safe access to Canada from Lebanon, where they have been denied their basic rights.

In a letter handed over to the embassy, the refugees expressed deep concerns over the abject situation in Lebanon, which they said forced them to seek shelter and livelihoods elsewhere.

Nearly 28,000 Palestinian refugees from Syria seeking shelter in Lebanon have been subjected to dire socio-economic conditions and a precarious legal status as the Lebanese authorities continue to rebuff their appeals for legal visas and access to the local labor market.

Palestinian refugees from Syria are reported to lack legal status in Lebanon. The absence of specific legislation addressing the unique situation of the Palestinians of Syria has made them vulnerable to marginalization within the Lebanese polity, both as inpiduals and as a community.

Palestinian refugees from Syria in Lebanon are also treated as foreigners rather than as asylum-seekers and are, thus, denied the right to renewed stays and subjected to forced deportation.
