Study Day: One Democratic State – from Concept to Struggle

Study Day: One Democratic State – from Concept to Struggle


The Popular Movement for One Democratic State in the Historic Land of Palestine

and “The Jaffa Group for One Democratic State

Call for a joint study day in Ramallah

Saturday, November 2, 2013, from 11:00 to 17:30

The movements assert that ODS is a strategic solution providing for the needs of the masses and the aspirations of the progressive and democratic forces in Palestine and around the world. They also state that the two-state solution is unable to put an end to the bloody conflict in occupied Palestine as it can’t provide for a fair solution for the right of return for Palestinian refugees and end the apartheid which is applied in all parts of the country. Nor does it provide a solution to the issues of Jerusalem, the borders, water and other contentious issues.

After intensive discussion about ODS at conferences and in the media, it is time to build a popular movement of struggle to unite all the country’s population and the Palestinian refugees for one goal and a common democratic future for all: to bring an end to the occupation and the regime based on displacement and racial discrimination and for return, freedom, democracy and equality.

The objectives of the study day

The main goal of this study day is to bring together activists who support ODS and those interested in the research and discussion of the possibility of the implementation of this program and turn it into a new axis to unite and develop the struggle against Israeli apartheid. For this reason most of the time will be dedicated to discussion between activists from both sides of the Green Line, Arabs and Jews, in which activists will exchange experiences and opinions and will build a common vision to continue the struggle and the building of one mass movement.
