La’Onf members organized athletic games for youth at the Amal Club in Mosul, Ninawa province. The event was held under the slogan “The election box is the best way to erase violence and terrorism,” and organizers highlighted the concept of peaceful competition among youth and encouraged youth to participate in the elections and political processes. The event was attended by the director of the Elections Office in Nineveh, heads of non-governmental organizations, and the Governor of Nenawa.

LaOnf logoThe Iraqi civil-society organization La’Onf (which means “no violence” in Arabic) is a network of Iraqi activists building a nonviolence movement to resist occupation, terrorism, and corruption in Iraq. These images were taken during the third annual Week of Nonviolence in Iraq in 2008.
