DISTURBING THE PEACE - 21. JUNI

Filmvisning på Fredshuset

 

 

Visning av prisbelønt dokumentar fra Israel og Palestina!

Onsdag 21. juni kl 18-21 viste Fredskulturgruppa og Norges Fredslag den sterke og rørende dokumentaren Disturibing The Peace på Fredshuset i Møllergata 12. Filmen forteller historien om tidligere soldater fra den israelske hæren og fra den palestinske geriljahæren, som sammen har dannet gruppa Combatants for Peace.

Ca 20 personer var tilstede; Fredskulturgruppa med sine norske og syriske medlemmer, daglig leder i Norges Fredslag, styreleder i Norges Fredsråd, fredsaktivister og personer som var nysgjerrige på denne grasrotfredsbevegelsen filmen handler om. De fortalte bl.a. etterpå om en filmopplevelse som kom nærmere deres egen virkelighet fordi krigsflyktninger selv var tilstede. Alle ble presentert for hverandre, og vi hadde en god felles refleksjon og samtale etter filmen.

Combatants for Peace

Who We Are

In 2006, Israeli and Palestinian former combatants, people who had taken an active role in the conflict, laid down their weapons and established Combatants for Peace. The egalitarian, bi-national, grassroots organization was founded on the belief that the cycle of violence can only be broken when Israelis and Palestinians join forces. Committed to joint nonviolence since its foundation, CFP works to both transform and resolve the conflict by ending Israeli occupation and all forms of violence between the two sides and building a peaceful future for both peoples.

Our vision

For over a decade we have embodied and served as a model for our humanistic values of freedom, democracy, security and dignity for all. We envision Combatants for Peace as a strong, significant, influential binational community - a community that exemplifies viable cooperation: co-resistance to the occupation and violence, which forms the basis for future co-existence. Through joint nonviolence in the present, we lay the foundations for a nonviolent future.

Our mission & main goals

In keeping with our values, we work towards a mutually agreed upon solution that will allow both Israelis and Palestinians to live in freedom,security, democracy and dignity in their homeland.

  • Building an ever-expanding Palestinian-Israeli joint activist community based upon CfP’s bi-national regional groups that embody our vision and serve as a model for both societies and their future. 
  • Motivating broad and effective bi-national, non-violent activity promoting freedom and security for both peoples in their homeland.
  • Changing attitudes on a wide scale, both within the Israeli and Palestinian public, as well as with governmental decision makers
