The struggle against the occupation and for democracy and equality depends on the time and energy of volunteers, but it also involves high legal expenses. One of the methods of suppressing the struggle against the occupation is legal persecution: many demonstrators Palestinians as well as Israelis are arrested at demonstrations for no reason. They are accused of false charges against which they must defend themselves. Despite the willingness of a dedicated legal team to work for solidarity rates, the costs add up to a substantial amount.

25% of the sale price of each work will be paid to the artist who donated the work. All funds raised will be dedicated to covering legal expenses. 

Opening hours: Thursday 20:00-23:00; Friday 10:00-16:00; Saturday 10:00-22:00

The initiators of the intervals project were the Coalition of Women For Peace which has supported this struggle from its inception and Anarchists Against The Wall have taken part in this struggle for about 10 years and have paid a high personal, legal and financial price.

These days the intervals project is being carried on by a group of activists to support the original goals of the project.

Selection of Texts on Nonviolent Struggles

Monday, February 8th, 2016

On December 2014 CWP has organised “A whole in a Brickwall” conference on Non-Violent struggles and
strategies for change
This booklet with selection of texts from various struggles and georaphical areas is another way of sharing the

knowledge that was gathered in movements all over the world, including Israel-Palestine

Nonviolence and Nonviolent resistance are by themselves very broad concepts and their various interpretations and manifestations are even broader and more diverse. We do not attempt providing in-depth explanations or discussing all the complexities and dilemmas regarding the struggles and their modes of operation. Instead, we chose to present several essential points and to describe several incidents and struggles from different places in the world that we can use for learning and drawing inspiration

Over the years, notions of nonviolent resistance have attracted considerable criticism. One of the major examples is the criticism voiced by Malcolm X against the approach identified with Martin Luther King Jr. Several questions and criticism have been raised also in the recent times, in the course of demonstrations and consolidation of protest movements worldwide, and in the struggle against the occupation.
It is important to remember that nonviolent struggle is not homogenous or dichotomic, it is not divided only into supporters and opponents. Rather it raises various issues and dilemmas, several of which are presented in this publication

Security of LBTQ women- Women’s Security Index 2015

Friday, November 27th, 2015

WSI – WOMEN’S SECURITY INDEX

 

Israel is viewed as a safe haven for the LGBTQ community (lesbians, gay, bisexuals, transgender and queer people). Attacks such as the one that occurred on July 2015 during  the Jerusalem Pride Parade are dismissed as an exception perpetuated by “bad apples”. It is also commonly assumed violence and homophobic attacks are directed more towards gay men, rather than towards women.

Our question is – how safe is the safe haven for LBTQ women in Israel? Do LBTQ women feel safe in public in Israel?

2015 findings

REDEFINING SECURITY, INFORMING PUBLIC POLICY

The WSI has developed a unique methodology for mapping changes in women’s experiences regarding their safety and security, providing a source of data for activists, NGOs and policy makers in Israel

WSI COALITION

WSI is a coalition of 6 Jewish and Palestinian feminist organizations: Isha L’Isha – Haifa Feminist Center, Coalition of Women for Peace, Kayan Feminist Organization, Aswat Palestinian Gay Women, Women Against Violence, New Profile, each making it’s unique contribution to the project.
