Our social structures in Lefkada and Corfu shouted a thunderous NO to violence and to intimidation by offering two very important seminars of the International Day of Non-Violence.
Violence in all its forms is despicable. Every aspect of it, hurts us and leaves scars on human souls. We must not show any tolerance in any form of violence and these two days were a voice for creating a culture of equality and respect.
The interesting topics developed by experienced speakers concerned mostly the domestic violence, a timeless phenomenon that does not choose social classes or ethnicity, school violence - Bullying, a phenomenon that presents increasing and multidimensional dimensions and cyberbullying which intimidate, threaten, humiliate or harass mainly children and adolescents through the use of the internet.
