Week after week, tens of thousands of Israelis – most in their 20s and 30s – are flooding the streets of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv to protest government corruption, and to demand democracy and justice. Albeit not the chief emphasis of the protest, anti-occupation and anti-annexation messages are an integral part of the protest.
Who is protesting and what do they Want? Why is a generation of depoliticized Israelis mobilizing? What is the modus operandi of the protest movement? What does the protest movement mean for Israeli society? And what does it mean for Israel’s peace movement and its agenda?
American-Israeli journalist Dina Kraft will address these and other questions on an Americans for Peace Now webinar.
