Week of Nonviolence in Iraq :: Photo Essay

More than 100 citizen groups in all 18 Iraqi provinces participated in a mid-October week of activities aimed at reducing violence in the January 2009 provincial elections. This photo essay shows a sample of events during this year’s Week of Nonviolence.

“Nonviolence is a tool to resist occupation, terrorism, and corruption,”

says Ismael Dawood, a La’Onf founder. The 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.
