Faces For Lebanon: Kickstarting a global campaign of human solidarity

10/8/2006

Faces for Lebanon

What was started by our friend Wael as a photo he took of himself in ‘silent protest’, has turned into a campaign that is taking on a life of its own.

Yesterday, in Kuwait, a campaign under the name Faces for Lebanon has started: A show of human solidarity with Lebanon, with aim of creating a global wave of people who are showing their faces to protest against the violence that the Lebanese people are being subjected to.

This is not a political campaign, as it aims to unite the voices of as many people as possible, on a global scale..

Photos can be uploaded from the site’s home page or by sending a photo attachment by email to myface{at}faces4lebanon{dot}org

Interested in spreading the campaign? Material is here.

Major Kuwaiti newspapers like Al Qabas and Assysasah have published the campaign’s ads already. A major media push will go in in the coming days in Kuwait and other countries.

    ooh! i’m in that one!

    Man,
    go and check the website — So many people are abusing it! I mean, photoshop-added white blocks, http://faces4lebanon.org/faces/person/76

    and it’s becoming impossible to go to previous pages of browsing images.
    I think you shoud set a criteria, but I don’t know whether you’re involved or not.
