End the Censorship in Lebanon!

End the censorship! I was initially hesitant about featuring this story on the blog, as I was both ashamed and disgusted at the rate of censorship in the country. Lebanon has always been set apart from other countries in the region because of its freedom and ability for artists, filmmakers, photographers, authors and others to express themselves freely. Unless this censorship stops Beirut will never develop a thriving art scene! 

Read this NYT article on the rise of censorship in Lebanon:
