Last Friday the Palestinian NGO’s refugee children/students (remedial Education and Psycho social support students) have protested against UNRWA’s unfair procedures of cutting Medical, educational and social services, which increase the suffering of the Palestinian refugees in Lebanon, specially in Nahr El bared Camp. whom are facing painful health,social and environmental and educational conditions since their second catastrophe in 2007, where up to now their homes still not rebuild yet.
The children raised their voice against UNRWA procedures and called for continuing its services as right to the Palestinian refugees to live with dignity and freedom until they return to their mother home Palestine.

The child Aya Kassem ( CYC) talked on behalf of the protested students; We are the children of Nahr El Bared suffering from deprivation of our minimum rights due the UNRWA inhuman policies which based on reducing its duties toward us. She called UNRWA to continue the emergency program of Nahr El Bared camp, stop reducing the health services and squeezing 50 students instead of 30 in each classroom, paying the rent to the families till the rebuilding their homes and assist the hardship cases of the families who are suffering from misery living conditions.

ردآ على اجراءات الأنروا التعسفيه وقراراتها الجائره بحق الشعب الفلسطيني في لبنان لا سيما اهالي مخيم نهر البارد الذين يعانون الويلات منذ نكبتهم الثانية في العام 2007 وحتى الآن ولم يجدوا بارقة امل لحل مشاكلهم الصحيه والبيئيه والإجتماعيه لا سيما ما تبقى من اعمار بيوتهم التي بنوها بعرقهم واوجاعهم ولأن المعركة المطلبية بوجه الأنروا يبدو طويلة ومستمرة حتى ترضخ الأخيره لمطالب شعبنا العادله ومكتسباته، فقد قام أطفال التدعيم الدراسي والنفسي في مؤسسات المجتمع الأهلي المحلي يوم الجمعة الماضي بإعتصام رمزي امام مكتب مدير خدمات نهر البارد ورفعوا الشعارات المندده بسياسة الأنروا الجائره والمطالبة بحقوقهم في العيش بكرامه وحريه الى ان يحين موعد العوده للوطن الأم – فلسطين.
وقد القت الطفله " آية قاسم " من ( CYC مركز الأطفال والفتوه ) كلمة الأطفال/ الطلاب حيث قالت نحن اطفال مخيم نهر اليارد نعاني من الحرمان ومن ابسط حقوقنا بسبب سياسة الأنروا المجحفه بحقنا وتقليص الخدمات الصحيه وتخفيض بدل اجرة المنازل وزيادة عدد الطلاب بالصف الواحد الى 55 طالب وطالبه. كما طالبت بإبقاء خطة الطوارئ لاستكمال بناء المخيم القديم وبرنامح الصحه واعادة النظر بتنظيم الصفوف بحدود 30 طالبآ للصف الواحد وزيادة عدد العائلات التي تعاني من وضع اقتصادي صعب للاستفادة من مساعدات الإغاثه الدائمه .

Going to Shatila.

This would be the email to be sent to the people who has stayed at the Guesthouse and has any relation with the CYC.

That´s it.

Dear all.

How are you?

My name is Rodrigo Cortés. I am a Chilean lawyer and I volunteered at the CYC during February 2015. If everything goes well, I will be returning to Shatila soon.

When I stayed at the guest house, Glenda Andrade, a Brazilian journalist who is pursuing a PhD in Paris, was also there. We have been working together since. For example, we submitted on behalf of a Palestinian NGO working in Shatila, a written contribution to the Universal Periodic Review process of Lebanon, which Pre-Sessions took place in Geneva, last October -we also attended the Pre-sessions-.

We have more ideas in which we want to work:

Giving visibility to Shatila and its history

We are thinking in making videos and having a webpage. There are different approaches regarding this issue. For instance, one option would be to make (or try to make) something similar to:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0424227/

Or, i a totally different approach, something similar to the campaign Droga5 did with the “Raise the River” idea.

Why giving visibility to Shatila?

Because we believe it is important to improve “Palestinians” position-leverage in any kind of negotiations we would like to have (with any counterparty).

Which are the other issues/ideas in which we want to work?

(i) Drinkable tap water at the camp. This is huge as it requires an “international project finance agreement”. But, it has not been done yet, so why wait on this if we can do this. Besides, a large part of Beirut does not have drinkable tap water.

(ii) Civil rights. For example, the “refugee” status which is being applied to Palestinians living in Shatila does not have any sense from a legal “human rights” standard.

(iii) Education. It is important to modify the way education is being taught at the camp. UNRWA´s curriculum should be modified, and higher education should be an option.

(iv) The Sabra and Shatila Massacre. Here, the strategy would be to request the Security Council at the UN to extend the jurisdiction of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon.

Any of these is huge. So, if you want to work you are kindly invited.

If you want to contact us, please feel free to do it at:

Yours faithfully,

Rodrigo Cortés.
