Gaza-Sderot: Putting Peace Back on the Agenda

On Sunday June 23, 2013 Other Voice organized a "Roundtable on Peace Initiatives" in Sderot, in front of the town's Cinematheque. The event was part of a nationwide activity held simultaneously across the country and aimed at reintroducing peace into the public discourse.  

Some 30 people attended the discussion, including Other Voice members and new participants. The talk focused on various topics related to the wider subject of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, including: the two-state versus the one-state solution, individuals' ability to promote change, is there a partner for dialogue on the other side, and more.  

The discussion allowed the participants to share personal feelings and experiences, discuss views and ideas and think together of possible courses of action that could bring about change in the current situation.
