Attuned Refuge with Marylou – The Regime Must Fall Special

12 September 2020

The Regime Must Fall special

This month I decided to focus on the vibrant and magical Lebanese scene, suffering since one year from the economic collapse of the country, and years from the corruption of the warlords in power. Half of the treatments and medicines are available in hospitals and nobody can even afford food groceries. The people are left alone, they can rely on nothing but themselves. 

Moreover, the massive explosion that tore through the port of Beirut on the evening of August 4 left more than 200 people dead, 6,000 injured, and a quarter of a million homeless. It hit the core of the Lebanese creative scene, whose neighbourhoods, studios, clubs, venues, museums were on the frontline or the blast. Many said the blast did more damage in a few seconds than 15 years of war. They all blame the sectarian elite that has ruled since the war for pushing the country to ruin, and I stand with them, and pray for the revolution to get organised, leading a democratic renaissance of that country I consider home. 

I’ll feature a few projects which were conceived in order to help NGOs working on the ground in Beirut, whose efforts are priceless. 

Warm love and full power to my Lebanese friends
