Bethlehem - Jerusalem 

 

Women leading the March for Freedom, Non-Violence and Peace!

The Women’sMarch4Peace calls out to people of all backgrounds – women, men and gender nonconforming people, young and old, of diverse faiths, differently abled, in all body shapes, immigrants and indigenous, regardless the passport they are holding – to come together in Jerusalem on the 21st of September 2018 in order to march for peace.

 

No matter where, women are suffering from the mechanisms of oppression severely. It is upon us to make a decision for change! We do believe in the power of female peace-builders because women have an inherent interest to be part of change-making. Driven by UNSCR 1325 our goal is to reach comprehensive peace and justice in the Middle East for the sake of all coming generations including Palestinians and Israelis.

 

Jerusalem is and has been a city of conflict for centuries. What we want it to be is a city of peace, god and sky – open to everyone. Striving for a world that is equitable, tolerant, just and safe for all the people goes along with conflict transformation in the case of the Israel-Palestine conflict. This March wants to contribute to a peace-building culture, restoring hope in all the people and finding a way out of the stalemate and crisis we are currently locked in.

 

WE, women and supporters from all over the globe therefore demand public peace negotiations with full participations of women from Palestine and Israel. In the light of the UN-resolution 1325 we claim to bring women on the negotiation tables. We have observed how women made a difference in peace processes as in Liberia, Sri Lanka and Ireland. That is why we want to encourage women to actively shape a cooperative and constructive peace policy worldwide starting in Jerusalem.

 

Join us on 21st of September in Jerusalem for the Women’sMarch4Peace.
