Combatants for Peace is a bi-national group of Palestinian and Israeli former fighters who now embrace a non-violent struggle for peace. They believe that join action can break the cycle of violence and bring about peace and reconciliation between Palestinians and Israelis and are putting their words into action. This event includes a short film; presentations by Palestinian Osama Elewat and Israeli Michal Hochberg about the personal experiences that brought them to Combatants for Peace; and a Question and Answer period.
