Members in Motion 
“The primary goal is to reclaim the identities of thousands of persons whose names were turned to numbers."
During the Lebanese Civil War between 1975 and 1990, 17,415 people were disappeared, although there has never been any official recognition of their disappearance by the Lebanese authorities. Our member ACT for the Disappeared – which works to clarify the fate of all those who disappeared in Lebanon since 1975, regardless of their nationality – has created an online memorial, “Fushat Amal” (Space for Hope), where family members can share information about their missing loved ones, providing a platform to those who have been deprived of their right to know for so long. Click below to read the organization's thoughts on the pressure to forget, the possibilities and limitations in the digital world and the universal need for spaces of hope.
