Bin Saud and Kawafi were among the most active youth leaders in Libya.Given the very real threats facing youth activists, I often feel insecure and worry that I – and youth activists in general – may be targeted anytime and anywhere. I believe that young people can be the peace builders of today.There are many youth initiatives inside Libya, perhaps one of the most prominent of which is Enough Violence, launched on July 15 by a group on Facebook. While there are many incidents of tragic violence in Libya, there are also young people who hold the pens of peace.International assistance and military actions are not sufficient to resolve the conflict in Libya. We – the young leaders from Libya – are far more effective on the ground, and we are much stronger than those calling for bloodshed.Let us not forget Bin Saud and Kawafi, and the actions of young people fighting for peace. The youth of Libya are still working to combat violence and support peace projects.
