The activists of Combatants for Peace are convinced that only a dialogue at eye level, in mutual respect and with the willingness to listen to each other while acknowledging the unequal power relations can solve the conflict and establish real equality. This could create the conditions for sustainable peace.
For over a decade, they have been leading actions based on the shared values of freedom, democracy, security and human dignity for all. Combatants for Peace is a unique non-violent movement in Israel and Palestine, founded and sustained by former armed fighters from both sides of an ongoing conflict.
Osama and Rotem will also report on the current situation in Israel and Palestine: on campaigns and activities against the occupation in the Palestinian territories and on the plans of the right-wing / ultra-religious government to dismantle democracy. And they report on their activities: In so-called narrative groups or face-to-face meetings, the Combatants for Peace bring together people from both societies. From Palestine and from Israel. People who would otherwise not meet in their everyday lives, who know nothing of the worries and joys, the hope and pain of the others.
