Tens of demonstrators gathered Thursday evening in front of the Jdeideh home and workspace of a family accused of abusing a migrant domestic worker, asking the judiciary to investigate further.The worker in question, Lensa Lelisa, said in a video taken from her bed in Serhal Hospital in Antelias on March 19 that she jumped from her employers balcony -- apparently from the building the protest was held under -- after being regularly beaten, abused and having her wages withheld by her employers since her arrival in Lebanon last July.Lelisa, along with some 100,000 other Ethiopian migrants in Lebanon, is employed under the Kafala system, which binds them to one employer, and is notorious for facilitating abuse and rights violations.
