Palestinian Refugees Take to  Beirut Streets to Push for Humanitarian Asylum

Palestinian refugees from Syria joined a rally held outside of the Australian embassy in Lebanon on Sep. 11 to demand humanitarian asylum and safe access to European countries pending a just and lasting solution to their plight.

At the same time, the Youth Authority of Palestinians from Syria handed over a memorandum to the Australian Embassy and the European Union, saying they have been enduring an abject situation in Lebanon, to which they fled after they were robbed of their property and belongings in war-torn Syria.

The refugees also sounded the alarm over the life-threatening journeys undertaken by hundreds of migrants onboard Europe-bound boats.

Last week, hundreds of Palestinian refugees, waving Palestinian and Canadian flags, gathered outside of the Canadian Embassy in Beirut, requesting asylum in the North American country.

The periodic protests outside the embassy on the coastal highway north of Beirut began a few weeks ago, after a crackdown on undocumented foreign labor by Lebanese authorities.

There are tens of thousands of Palestinian refugees and their descendants in Lebanon. Most of them live in squalid camps with no access to public services, limited employment opportunities and no rights to ownership.
