Jeff Halper: ‘One Democratic State in Palestine – It’s Time’
and Hisham Sharabati ‘Hebron: A microcosm of the occupation’
Jeff Halper is co-founder of ICAHD – an Israeli human rights and peace organisation dedicated to ending the prolonged Israeli occupation over the Palestinians. He argues that Israel’s ‘Matrix of Control’ over Occupied Palestine has effectively eliminated the ‘2-state solution’ and has produced a regime of apartheid. So the only just solution left is a single constitutional democracy: one country, one citizenship, one parliament and universal shared civil rights. He will explore how this would work and how it could be achieved.
Hisham Sharabati an activist from the West Bank and co-founder of the non-violent resistance group the Hebron Defence Committee will also speak, on Hebron: A Microcosm of the Occupation.
