Doctors At Lebanese University Are Going On Strike Starting Today

Lebanese University

The Association of Full-Time in the Lebanese University (LU) announced a strike starting today, after an online meeting lead by Doctor Amer Halawani.

The association said that the university resumed its academic duties in full, but with the current economic and social situation in Lebanon, they can’t go on with their duties.

Therefore, they are following through with the decision they announced on the 19th of September to strike today until the necessities for teaching on-campus are provided.

A press conference will be held this Tuesday for updates regarding their decision to stop any teaching in LU’s faculties.

The announcement added that they are expecting their colleagues, both administrative and academic to join them in the full-stoppage of any academic or administrative activity.

They added that they are hoping to sustain the continuity of the Lebanese University which isn’t getting any serious care from political powers.

This strike is part of a long-series of strikes that have been taking place for the past 3 years. In 2019, one of their strikes lasted 7 weeks.

The University has been facing a lot of budget-cuts. Doctors’ salaries, like everyone in Lebanon, are worth much less than before.

More attention needs to be given to it, especially now with it becoming the only choice for many students as private universities became more inaccessible.
