The campaign is very dominant on the streets of beirut, its really hard to turn a corner without seeing another series.

Is is really time for change? change of what?

Safety, Justice, Equality are high-rate demands that Must be available in our society and any other society, but its not a tweek in the system that can lead to it, but a genuine change the flows from the thoughts of students behind their desks at school to the pens of diplomats and presidents that come and go (or don’t go) , while the streets are still swamped with dismay.

Do you think its time for Change?

maybe we should start by spreading the word, working for it, dreaming about it, and changing from the inside, so that change will flourish on the outside.

are YOU being Fare in in your daily interactions?

are YOU playing it safe? seatbelt? protection?

are YOU treating people equally?
