Sept. 11 Families Join Nonviolence Efforts in Iraq

Please, spread the message: There is not only violence in Iraq, there is something more -- people are building peace and seeking real change. Today La'Onf exists within the polarized and dangerous political environment of Iraq, where if you speak about resistance you are accused of supporting terrorists and advocating violence, but if you speak about nonviolence you are accused of supporting the occupation. La'Onf seeks to create a third way with its message that nonviolence is a tool to resist occupation and terrorism."
