Women Fighting Against War Amnesia

Lynn Maalouf

Abstract


In July 2003, as the Lebanese ministers met for their weekly session to discuss taxes, electricity, and cellular phone companies, two women were standing alone in the scorching heat, at the steps of the cabinet headquarters, desperately trying to get a word with anyone inside. But no one would let them in. The only response they got to their screams and shouts was to be dragged away by the security forces, before any of the ministers even knew they were there. They had walked from around the corner, from where a group of families were holding one of their weekly sit-ins before the National Museum, in one of their many efforts to keep their cause alive - that of the missing - their sons, husbands, and brothers.
