Thanks to the incredible mobilization of our members we spurred a public conversation about the occupation, fought back against incitement, and advanced Arab-Jewish partnership. I’m excited to share some of what we accomplished together:
50 minibuses shuttled voters in the Negev from villages to voting stations far away.
Nearly 200 Israelis joined a video call with Gazans.
Nearly 200,000 thousands Israelis saw the message from Palestinian residents of Hebron to remember them in the polling booth, and vote to end the occupation.
When the Central Elections Committee was in its session, we demonstrated outside the Knesset. Last week, more than 14,000 members of Zazim called for all party heads to disqualify the Kahanists and to work towards Jewish-Arab partnership in the Knesset. We brought those voices to the Elections Committee.
Yesterday morning, we came to Yair Lapid’s house to demand him not to let the spin of the extreme right succeed: Kahane’s racial supremacism has nothing in common with the demand for equality of the Balad-Raam and Hadash-Taal parties.
On Friday, March 1st, roughly 200 participants took part in our special tour we organized with Breaking the Silence. A lead-in to the upcoming elections, the tour also marked 25 years to the Baruch Goldstein massacre in Hebron.
When the local bus to the Barzilai Hospital in the city of Ashkelon arrives at the hospital gates, something horrifying happens: private security guards board the bus and seek out the Arab passengers.
Women and men from across the country, Arabs and Jews, are saying enough – and demanding government action to end the epidemic of violence against women.
In the past few days, over 10,000 Zazim members called on key Knesset Members to vote against the anti-democratic “loyalty in arts” bill.
