what needs to be done now on the civic level

Due to the growing tensions after the killing of a sheikh in the North of the country (sheikh abdel wahed)  Some armed groups thought it is fine to just spread violence through lebanon starting from tripoli and akkar areas reaching Tareeq Jdideh beirut through the night ...

Facebook statuses and tweets varied from giving updated info on what is happening on the ground, uploading videos when available  and off course New TV installing their camera on a rooftop of a building and having it as live surveillance all night , so people like myself living abroad feel home , upset, worried and tied up feeling useless.

that is in short

Now the thinking behind this : WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE ?

have a gay parade ?

an art exhibition?

a cabaret evening ?

a magnum champagne?

We need to reach the real people on the ground , the masses and not the 'so called' privileged educated lebanese society , which is in fact a very rare species , we need to look for the people who are making this noise , and who are carrying the weapons ...

if GOD or Syria or ARAB summer what they want we need to talk sense to them ,
we need to tackle the stupid dangerous media too...

Groups have to be formed from all walks of life immediately and draft a plan for awareness on all levels : campaign against media sectarian flare ups , we need to campaign outside mosques , churches , all kinds of houses of God / Gods  , community centres , we need to call up scouts associations , green associations , any NGO dealing with anything lebanese and starting to have a massive awareness for the masses
yes the masses the people who will make a difference ... yes we do not want 100 thousand people walking the streets , we need the millions , and all kinds ... with one message , one flag , one nation... we r one nation with differences , we should cherish and respect differences ...
