One Democratic, Secular Decolonized State: Is it feasible, possible, desirable?

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

For some, One State is seen as the only possible and equitable solution to resolve the competing aspirations of both Israelis and Palestinians. For others, the One State solution is viewed as totally opposed to long-held Zionist aspirations for a secure Jewish homeland.

Jeff Halper, a long-time Jewish Israeli-American activist who lives in Jerusalem will discuss his new book, Decolonizing Israel, Liberating Palestine, with a response from Noura Mansour, a campaigner for Australian Palestine Advocacy Network, and Irving Wallach, a left-Zionist, two-state supporter and against the occupation. We will also take audience questions.

Jeff Halper argues that the only way out of the current situation is by decolonization: the dismantling of Zionist structures of domination and control and their replacement by a single democratic state, in which Palestinians and Israeli Jews forge a new civil society and a shared political community. After Jeff’s presentation, Noura Mansour will respond from a Palestinian perspective and Irving Wallach will respond from a left Jewish Australian Zionist perspective.
