So Where Am I to Live?

No room in Gaza, Iraq does not want us, can't start a settlement in West Bank, now we can't rebuild the refugee camp in Lebanon that was destroyed? So, under the sun that shines on everyone regardeless of faith, race, or politics - where shall we live?

Residents from the Nahr al-Bared refugee camp in northern Lebanon gathered on 16 September to protest the Lebanese government’s halting of planned reconstruction of the camp that was destroyed in 2007 in a battle between the Lebanese army and militants from Fatah al-Islam. Hundreds of refugees from the camp and their supporters gathered in Tripoli, the closest major city to Nahr al-Bared. After being denied a permit to protest at the police station near the city’s center, organizers change the location an area far away from symbolic government buildings and people.
