Combatants for Peace:
Bassam Aramin and Yonatan Shapira Speak Out
Tues, Oct 31, 5pm, at 145 Dwinelle, UC Berkeley Campus

These two brave former combatants will speak about their personal experiences and alternatives to war. From their web site:

"We are a group of Israeli and Palestinian individuals who were
actively involved in the cycle of violence in our area. The Israelis served as combat soldiers in the Israel Defense Forces and the Palestinians were involved in acts of violence in the name of Palestinian liberation. We all used weapons against one another, and looked at each other only through weapon sights; however today we cooperate and commit ourselves to the following:
* We no longer believe that the conflict can be resolved through violence.
* We believe that the blood shed will not end unless we act together to terminate the occupation and stop all forms of violence.
* We call for the establishment of a Palestinian State, alongside the State of Israel. The two states can exist in peace and security beside each other.
* We will use only non-violent means to achieve our goals and call for both societies to end violence."
