Civil Resistance in Lebanon

Civil resistance in Lebanon, along the lines of Palestine's International Solidarity Movement (ISM), and with ISM's participation. The first action, and coming actions, are described here. Be sure to hunt around on the site. You can also download posters like the one featured here, as well as banners (like the one in the right-hand column) to put on your website. From the press release:
On August 12 at 7 am, we will gather in Martyrs’ Square to form a civilian convoy to the south of Lebanon. Hundreds of Lebanese and international civilians will carry relief as an expression of solidarity for the inhabitants of the heavily destroyed south who have been bravely withstanding the assault of the Israeli military.

After August 12th, the campaign will continue with a series of civil actions for which your presence and participation is needed. Working together in solidarity we will overcome the complacency, inaction, and complicity of the international community and we will deny Israel its goal of removing Lebanese from their land and destroying the fabric of our country.
