Tonight, Saturday July 26 at 8 p.m. in Rabin Square in Tel-Aviv, well be held “Get Out! Stop the War Demo”. According to organizers: “On Saturday, the peace camp takes a stand at Rabin Square. The war is taking a heavy toll in lives and injuries on both sides, in destruction and horror, in bombings and rockets. We answer this by taking a stand and making a demand: end the war now!
“We must end the war and start talking with the recognized Palestinian leadership of the West Bank and Gaza, to end the occupation and the siege and to achieve independence and justice for both peoples – in Israel and Palestine.
“Instead of being drawn, again and again, into more wars and more military actions, it is now time to lead the way to dialogue and political settlement. There is a political solution. What price must we pay – the people of the South and the other residents of Israel, and the people of Gaza and the West Bank – until we reach that solution? Together, Jews and Arabs, we will overcome occupation and war, hatred, incitement and racism – and offer a path to life and hope.”
The demonstration is an initiative of the Communist Party of Israel – Hadash, Meretz, Breaking the Silence, Palestinian-Israeli Parents Circle – Families Forum, Women to Women – Feminist Center in Haifa, Combatants for Peace and Peace Organizations Forum, among others.
