From the Creative Frontline of Lebanon's Revolution

Since October 2019, demonstrators have flooded the streets of Lebanon; part of a grassroots movement against corruption, climate denial, big finance, and government failure. Civil society organizations are now providing people with everything from food and protection to street cleaning and work. From one crisis to another, Laura talks with Lebanese activist/artist Dayna Ash who runs one of the few safe spaces for LGBTQI+ people and women in the region. Her experience of organizing in a melt-down contains lessons for us all.

The Laura Flanders Show leads the field in new economy media, reporting on the social critics, artists, activists, and entrepreneurs who are building tomorrow’s world today. While mainstream media looks for ways the world is falling apart, The LF Show brings us stories that will piece it back together — better.
