Misrata, 11 April 2013:
Misratans have launched the Kafana (Enough) campaign, which calls on the people of the city to . . .[restrict]renounce violence, down arms and reject attacks on state institutions.
Kafana, which held its first rally yesterday, Wednesday, further demands that the rule of law be established. It also calls for greater professionalism to be shown in the workplace, asking that officials demonstrate their commitment to their jobs by adopting punctuality and adhering to office hours.
Kafana organisers spoke at a demonstration in Misrata yesterday, outlining their commitment to the Charter of Honour, which Misrata declared last month. They also appealed to the people of the city to show solidarity and support this initiative.
The gathering attracted several hundred people calling for the rule of law and for greater support to be shown to the courts and judiciary.
It was organised by Al-Shura Council, civil society organisations, lawyers and members of the Misrata Business Council.
The rally assembled after Asr prayers in front of the Al-Sheikl mosque. From there, the protestors marched to Justice Square in front of the courts complex, carrying banners deploring violence and abuse and calling for the enforcement of the rule of law. [/restrict]
