Join ICAHD UK member to a day of talks and discussions, paving the way to campaigning for one state in Palestine.
The two-state solution is gone` buried under Israel’s “matrix of control”, the confiscation of Palestinian land, its Kafkaesque laws and Israeli Supreme Court rulings ignoring international law. Israel continues to act with impunity and no Western government or international body is calling it to account. The time has come to start actively campaigning for one-state. Palestinians and Israelis have joined together to form the One Democratic State Campaign which seeks to provide leadership, direction and a viable way forward. However, with obstacles and difficulties that impede engagement and communication between Palestinians and Israelis how can they come together for a one-state solution? How can Israelis, living in a militarized society where Arab are demonised change their view of the Palestinians? How can the Palestinians living under a brutal military occupation that traumatized their society heal, and be able to share statehood with their oppressor?
