30,000 women from Israel and Palestine join the Peace Rally for Women Wage Peace.

Women Wage Peace is a movement that works to raise awareness and engage the public in a discussion about the feasibility of a political resolution. It creates opportunities for dialogue with individuals and groups through formal and informal meetings within the community. The movement also organises national events, such as demonstrations and protests, in order to pressure decision makers to work toward reaching a viable peace agreement.

This week saw 30,000 women from Isreal and Palestine taking part in this years Peace Rally.

The rally was the high point of a “peace walk” that began two weeks ago in Sderot in the Negev and passed through the territories and Israel, with the participation of thousands of Israeli and Palestinian women, calling for a peace agreement.
