At a visit to the Islamic Sciences Union in Dahuk, La’Onf member groups presented the Week of Nonviolence. They highlighted the importance of adopting nonviolence concepts in speeches, at conferences, and during religious events. The manager of the Union welcomed the idea of nonviolence and was very excited about the work of La’Onf. He encouraged participants to adopt nonviolence because it is an Islamic principle.

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.
