Global Webcast, Saturday, August 12 2006, 9-11 PM (CET)
URL: http://beirut.dischosting.nl | http://streamtime.org

Outraged at Israel's ongoing aggression on Lebanon - which since July 
2006 has killed over 900 people (mostly civilians),  displaced nearly
one million people (1/4 of Lebanon's entire population), and wrecked
Lebanon's infrastructure and economy - we say: khalas! enough!

We call for an immediate end to the violence and destruction.
We call on the international community to open its eyes - and on you to
make your voice heard.

With our fellow activists, artists and other bloggers in Lebanon - and
input from Iraq - we will produce a collaborative global webcast on
Saturday August 12, from 9 to 11 p.m. Central European Time/10-12
p.m. Lebanon time

This unique free style web jam around 'frequently raised despair' will
be produced at Waag Society in Amsterdam by Streamtime's Cecile
Landman, Jo van der Spek, Geert Lovink and Jaromil in collaboration 
with Tarek Atoui, Nat Muller, Paul Keller  and many others.

The Global Webjam will consist of an audio and video stream, and
feature live interviews and conversations, video clips, cartoons and
blog blurbs, soundscapes, DJs and VJs, a lively mix of information,
art, protest, party and reflection.

Wahid el-Solh, a Lebanese DJ based in the Netherlands, will provide us
with the unrivalled nightlife ambiance of Beirut.

We see this as a precedent for future collaborations - to create a
platform fitting the spirit of Beirut, in defiance of war, and in
search for solidarity.

We shout out for our friends in Lebanon and elsewhere to contact us if
they want to join, share, participate in and contribute with their
recent experiences and productions.
