    Reading Adriana matre opera at the present time calls to question what is happening in Syria since 2011, the atrocities and enormities that transcend the boundaries of humanity and extend to reach the level of radical and absolute evil, this can not be correct with the naive idea of forgiveness which is a political or legal consensus or Legislative or even religious, these atrocities come under the heading of what does not accept atonement, and what does not accept reparation for harm, what cannot be erased, incurable, irreversible, what is unforgettable, what cannot be canceled, and what exceed the final and the last.

Why a non-violent intervention?

This stage aims to increase awareness of social injustice and to communicate the voice of the marginalized. In conflict situations, where power is not balanced and public awareness of issues is scarce, it is difficult to have some kind of negotiation or movement of powers.
In these cases, it is important to wage a non-violent conflict that develops individuals’ awareness of their potential and the obstacles surrounding them, as well as the prevailing social imbalances in their society, and this strategy, which some describe as negative, is a resolute to change an unfair situation and at the same time increases the understanding of the conflicting groups For their interconnectedness, the nonviolence strategy seeks to win support for change by raising awareness of local groups.
