The national campaign “Smow” launched its various activities and events in the Palestinian city centers, in each of Ramallah, Hebron, Bethlehem, Jericho, Jerusalem, Nablus, Tulkarm and Qalqilya. A seriese of activities have been implemented which carried out messages that reject violence, bullying and negative attitudes, such as drama performances and distribution of publications and quotes of the campaign, in addition to “Pledge Activity” where the students collected citizens signatures from different Palestinian cites who guaranteed their commitment to renounce violence and bullying in their societies and to adopt positive behaviors such as constructive dialogue and to address violence in all its forms.
