Before it’s too late: moving from protest to ongoing activity

The conference calls on Jewish and Arab human rights, protest and peace organizations to make a clear joint appeal and work together to:
Stop the siege on Gaza
Stop incitement towards Palestinians in Israel, and the policy of racism towards them.
Stop the persecution of critics and opponents of - - Government policy.
Strive for the ending of the occupation in a persistent and effective way.
A joint struggle conducted by both Arab and Jewish organizations, on a basis of clear ideas, will awaken all those who want to act for change. There can be no change without a determined and prolonged struggle, yet with joint activity, the chances of success are great.
