Other information: Zoukak’s “Nes bsamneh w nes bzeit” street performance will launch the march against gender-based violence organized by KAFA on Saturday, from the National Museum to the Palace of Justice in Beirut .
“Nes bsamneh w nes bzeit” (“some people are coated in ghee and others in oil”, a Lebanese saying that denounces social discrimination) by Zoukak, is based on work by the KAFA Violence & Exploitation organization documenting testimonies of victims of domestic violence. The march aims to pressure parliament into legislating a law protecting women against domestic violence, prompted by several recent incidents that led to the death of a number of married women.
