The World March in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem

On the 11th and 12th of October the Middle East team of the World March for Peace and Nonviolence passed through Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.  Among the Marchers was Giorgio Schultze, European Spokesperson for the March.  The team met the Director of the Hebrew University of Music and Dance in Jerusalem and the Councillor Margalit from the Meretz Party.

On the 11th October the Middle East Team of the World March, following the Egyptian Stage reached Tel Aviv in Israel.  Among the marchers was European Spokesperson, the Italian Architect Giorgio Schultze.

Two important meetings marked this stage: a meeting with the Director of the Hebrew University of Music and Dance in Jerusalem and with Town Councillor Meir Margalit from the Meretz Party.

World March in Jerusalemm

The University Directory will organise a concert in the Music Hall of traditional and modern “multicultural” music (Hebrew, Arabic and western) on the 16th of December, performed by students and teachers together to promote the richness of the March.  This event will be networked with simultaneous concerts in Buenos Aires and other cities around the world on the same date.

Margalit, the Town Councillor from the socialist Meretz Party, gave some local proposals to improve the situation in Jerusalem, among which is the idea to create a non-territorial yet functional division of the city, becoming the capital of two states.  In summary, the proposals would define an Israeli and Palestinian administration based on a majority of the population in various zones.  The proposal is supported by a part of the Israeli population and by a majority of Palestinians.  “It seems to be a utopian proposal, but it is the only possibility to create a collective consciousness of shared land” Margalit affirmed.

Born from the meeting with Margalit, the proposal that Giorgio Schultze will present to the Nobel Peace laureates during the Berlin Summit on the 11th of November, is to organise an event in Jerusalem and to hold the next Summit in Jerusalem, the crossroads of religions and world civilisations.

The day ended with a meeting of the March Base Team with the radio station “All for Peace” that is busy publicising the activities linked to Peace and Nonviolence.
