In Dhi Qar, La’Onf members talked with kindergartners about nonviolence. The nonviolence group of Dhi Qar visited the Mama Suna kindergarten and met with the children and teachers. They talked about how to choose nonviolent toys and games instead of guns and fire games. The group gave the children toys, and got many smiles in exchange. The kindergarten hopes to stay in touch with the group to continue to teach nonviolence to the children.

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.
