LIKAAT - Testimony of War: Lessons for the Future

  • Levantine Institute of Tripoli 14, Independence Street, Tripoli, Lebanon (map)

´´We did not want to see this happen to a new generation of Lebanese youth. We did not want history to repeat itself. We got together and wrote a letter to the youth of today, asking them not to repeat the mistakes of the past and to realise that in war there are no winners, only losers. Violence only breeds violence, it can never lead to peace´´

´´Our organization Fighters for Peace was born.´´

Join us in the next edition of Likaat and listen to the testimony of ex-fighters of the Lebanese Civil War (1975 - 1990). Members of Fighters for Peace will share their own experience with struggle to rebuild their lives after the war as well as the initiatives to engage Lebanese society in order to build a lasting civil peace and a true reconciliation in Lebanon. 

About Fighters for Peace

Fighters for Peace is the only organisation in Lebanon that unites former fighters from different political, religious and social backgrounds. Among their members there are also journalists, filmmakers and psychologists. 

The organisation was created as a response to the violent street clashes that erupted between Sunni and Alawites in Tripoli in 2013. To many the conflict seemed like flashbacks of the Lebanese Civil War. 

´´What unites us is the will to work for a more peaceful country and region´´

Please be early, places are limited to 40 seats. The event will be followed by a debate and a small buffet. 

We look forward to welcoming you all to the Likaat!
