Liberation Gathering

In the Shadow of the Separation Wall

We are honored to invite you to the "Combatants for Peace" Israeli-Palestinian Liberation Gathering.  On the occasions of Passover and Palestinian Prisoner Day, we will gather around one table and describe how all of us, who were warriors in the past,  have put our weapons aside and replaced them with a non violent joint struggle against the occupation and for peace between the two peoples.

 

"Combatants for Peace" is a unique non-profit organization comprised of a group of Israeli and Palestinian individuals who were actively involved in the cycle of violence in our area. The Israelis served as combat soldiers in the Israeli army and the Palestinians were involved in acts of violence in the name of Palestinian liberation. In the past we used weapons against one another, we saw each other only through weapon sights - now, we are working together for peace and justice.  The Liberation Gathering marks the hope and longing for the freedom and independence of both peoples. The liberation gathering is the first public event of "Combatants for Peace" following a year of activity.
