After Zionism at the World Matters Literary Festival 20 October

Saturday 20 October

Session 4

3 .15 pm – 4.15 pm: After Zionism Making Peace with Palestine

The Israel/Palestine ‘peace process’ has failed and the occupation has never been more pervasive. The prospect of a two-state solution, a position advocated by all Western countries, is increasingly criticised as being at odds with the realities of the conflict. Antony Loewenstein and Ahmed Moor have  co-edited a new collection of essays which present the world’s leading writers on ways to achieve the only democratic outcome in the Middle East, a one-state solution. Samah Sabawi, co author of Journey to Peace in Palestine, playwright and advisor to Palestinian policy network, Al Shabaka, will contribute to the conversation. According to Samah , “peace is not just the absence of violence but the presence of justice.”

Chair: Hilary McPhee
