Live audio/video streaming transmission from Waag Society in Amsterdam,
in  direct connection with Beirut and surrounding localities. The event
was initiated by Streamtime, a web support campaign for Iraqi bloggers.

After  one  month  of  violence and carnage, this Global Web Jam brings
together  live  interviews and conversations, video clips, cartoons and
blog  blurbs,  soundscapes,  DJs  and VJs, a lively mix of information,
art,  protest,  party  and  reflection.  We  feature the voices, images
stories,   reports  and  initiatives  from  Lebanon  and  beyond,  with
participation  of  activists, artists, bloggers, journalists, musicians
and many others.

This is a call for an immediate end to the violence and destruction, in
defiance of war, and in search for solidarity.

With  contributions  and  participation  of: Wahid el-Solh, Mounira el-
Solh,  Sonya  Knox,  Naeem  Mohaiemen,  Kanj  Hamadi, Jim Quilty, Randa
Mirza,  Mazen  Kerbaj,  Raed  Yassin,  Charbel Haber, Nathalie Fallaha,

Siepermann,  Arjan  El Fassed, Ruud Huurman, Kadir van Lohuizen, Thomas
Burkhalter and Anna Trechsel, Beirut DC, Tarek Atoui and many others.
