Dai LaKibush – End The Occupation
Dai LaKibush was an independent Israeli coalition of political groups and individuals, both Jewish and Arab, that emerged in response to the 1987 uprising in the West Band and Gaza. The group expressed a clear message of solidarity with the Palestinian struggle for self-determination. Their main goal was to influence Israeli public opinion to accept a just solution for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and to build a democratic society in Israel. They demanded an immediate end to the occupation, the creation of a sovereign Palestinian state beside Israel and negotiations with the PLO “the sole legitimate representative of the Palestinian people”.
Dai LaKibush demonstrated regularly at public venues throughout Jerusalem in front of the Prime Minister’s residence and at major intersections. Other activities included informal house meetings between Israelis and Palestinians, weekly solidarity visits to West Bank villages and refugee camps, sending speakers to talk to seniors in high school about to be drafted into the army, staffing an information table outside the PM’s residence and handing out leaflets at cultural activities around Jerusalem.
Some members of Dai LaKibush also initiated other peace movements such as Women In Back, The Committee for Beita and Youth Against the Occupation.
