Date of Event: Tuesday 8 November 2005
Time 6 pm
Place: Russell Building, University of Sussex
Description:

Sussex & Brighton jsocs, in association with
sussex islamic society are proud to host a very special event. 2 youth
activists, one israeli, one palestinian will be coming to our campus
with the 'one voice' peace group. They hope to share a message of a
hopeful future with student activists around the world. Please join us
and become part of the solution to the problems in the middle east. more
information about the group is contained below. Whatever your beliefs
about the middle east, please come along and give our guests the
courtesy of hearing 2 opinions as to how we can find a peaceful future.


FORGET WHAT YOU’VE BEEN TOLD


Time and again campuses are filled with literature and speakers on the
Middle East conflict. Pro-Israeli and pro-Palestinian professors going
head to head on who’s history is truthful, parents of children killed
through terror or occupation denouncing the ‘other side’. We’ve heard
from the people with the agendas, but what do average Israelis and
average Palestinians think? Do they want peace? Are they able to
compromise? OneVoice, in partnership with Americans for Informed
Democracy and a host of local, national and international student and
professional bodies are coming to answer these questions for you.



The OneVoice Movement is a mass grassroots movement in the Middle East
that empowers voices of moderation to stand up against extremism and to
make themselves heard. The vast majority of Israelis and Palestinians
want peace and are prepared to compromise for it and now they are asking
for your help.

Senior palestinian and israeli youth activists will be speaking on
campus next week, trying to galvanize support for their work in the
Middle East and giving British students the opportunity to be part of
the solution, rather than part of the problem.
