Saturday, April 28, 2018, 3:30-5:30pm

Belmont/Watertown United Methodist Church

In 2006, Israeli and Palestinian former combatants laid down their weapons and established Combatants for Peace.  They forswear violence and advocate together for an end to the Occupation.  The egalitarian, bi-national movement was founded on the belief that the cycle of violence can only be broken when Israelis and Palestinians join forces.  Combatants for Peace were nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, 2017.

Two Combatants will be telling their personal stories of transformation from violence to nonviolence, and sharing the work that they are doing to end the occupation and to bring peace to their homeland.
