Another racist incident was reported by the Anti-Racism Movement in Lebanon.

We should however note that St. Georges Beach Club is far from being the only one. Two other examples are Riviera and Coral Beach which specifically ban migrant workers from entering. Lazy B has a more humane policy: Migrant workers can enter for free if they don’t swim since they are considered to be helpers of Lazy B customers. If they wish to swim, they are considered to be like any other customer and therefore have to pay.
