Love and solidarity with @mashrou3leila. This is utterly ridiculous: #Lebanese church demands cancellation of Mashrou' Leila show. The band are such a great representative of Lebanese artists and they have performed many times already in their country. reut.rs/2LBdlPG
#Lebanese authorities must protect @mashrou3leila from a mounting hate campaign and ensure the band, known for songs tackling social issues in Arab societies such as homophobia, patriarchy & corruption, are able to perform in safety and security. amnesty.org/en/latest/news…
On July 12, it was such a thrill to see @mashrou3leila and author @rabihalameddine perform as part of Oliver Beer’s Vessel Orchestra at @Met_Breuer. They make #Lebanon proud and should be celebrated, not subjected to hate.
I wrote this in 2017 after #Egypt banned @mashrou3leila from performing after fans waved rainbow flags at the band’s concert, attended by 35k people. The regime used the flags to launch worst anti #LGBTQ crackdown in modern #Egyptian history google.com/amp/s/www.nyti…
I am proud to know Hamed, Carl, Haig and Firas. @mashrou3leila are a treasure! Make sure they can perform, always, #Lebanon! Picture of members of the band Mashrou Leila with Mona
#Lebanon should not join #Jordan and #Egypt - two of the most repressive regimes in the region - in banning @mashrou3leila, one of the most popular bands in the region. Let them perform, #Lebanon!
