An independent, unaligned news, lobby and social media campaign calling for a sustainable peace agreement between Israel and Palestine.
How hard it is to bring about change! The Palestinians and Israelis have entirely differing views of history, of the future, of what is true. This project takes a pragmatic approach. It does not look back, it is non-partisan. It is putting the Israeli-Palestinian conflict within a broader framework of inequality and the Middle East. It raises questions, opens a dialogue and calls for a plurality of constructive responses which, hopefully, could build enough momentum to help break the current impasse of this complex conflict.
