WHO ARE COMBATANTS FOR PEACE?
Combatants for Peace (CfP) is a grassroots movement of Palestinians and Israelis, working together to end the occupation and bring sustainable peace, equality, and freedom to our homeland. CfP envisions a just future where the inherent equality and dignity of all are fully realized. Committed to joint nonviolence since our inception, we use civil resistance, education, human rights campaigns, and other creative means of activism to transform systems of oppression and build a democratic and equitable society. Launched in 2005, we are the only movement worldwide that was founded by former fighters on both sides of an active conflict. As a result, we were nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2017 and 2018.
Combatants for Peace envisions a future of freedom and peace,
with equal rights and self-determination for all.
Combatants for Peace serves as a model and catalyst for democracy, equality, freedom and dignity for all Palestinians and Israelis. We aim to build a just and peaceful society from the ground-up, through egalitarian community building, grassroots organizing & joint nonviolent civil resistance.
