Other Voice, For a civil solution in the Sderot-Gaza region
We, members of Other Voice, Psychoactive, the Negev Institute for Strategies of Peace and Development, Friendship across Borders and Collot baNegev, we - ordinary people from Israeli society - are saying in one clear and unanimous voice:
Any expression of racism or violence is in direct contradiction to the social-economic struggle
We are glad that so many groups and people are joining this protest movement, and are coming together in this very important struggle. However, we strongly protest any and all expressions of racism, violence, discrimination, social exclusion and oppression of sectors and groups. These are the limits of the protest moment and these are the limits of democracy. Racism and discrimination will only deepen the injustices that already exist.
Other Voice is a grassroots group that has no political aspirations. We are citizens of the Sderot region and the Gaza region. We are interested in finding creative ways of hearing a new voice from the region and for promoting hope and non-violent actions for the benefit of the locals who live here in Sderot and in the Gaza Strip.
Other Voice includes diverse men and women from all political backgrounds, professions, and beliefs. We all agree that joint civil action is needed in order to create a new sustainable option for our lives in this region.
