Combatants for Peace
October 8, 2013
Time: 7:00 pm
Location: Jewish Community of Amherst, 742 Main St
A bi-national peace activist movement of former Israeli and Palestinian combatants who were once part of the cycle of violence and who decided to lay down weapons and to work together towards peace and coexistence in non-violent ways. In the last few years, they have organised hundreds of joint activities, house-meetings and lectures in Israel and Palestine. At these events they call for an end to the occupation and violence and for mutual recognition, dialogue, and partnership between the two sides.
Four members of Combatants for Peace, two Israeli and two Palestine, will speak with a reception to follow. Co-sponsored by PSR Pioneer Valley.
