This video from Israel says about itself:
The Coalition of Women for Peace was founded in November 2000, just six weeks after the current Intifada began, and since then become one of the leading voices in Israel advocating for a just and viable peace between Israel and Palestine.
This short video report was made during my journalism studies in Koteret in March 2002. It uses both archive footage of the first demonstration preformed early February 2002 in front of the Israeli Security headquarters also know as “The Kirya”. In addition it includes original footage documenting the second demonstration, took place a month and a half later on March 13, 2002.

Statement By Israeli Women’s Organizations
We women’s organizations from a broad spectrum of political views demand an end to the bombing and other tools of death, and call for the immediate start of deliberations to talk peace and not make war. The dance of death and destruction must come to an end. We demand that war no longer be an option, nor violence a strategy, nor killing an alternative. The society we want is one in which every individual can lead a life of security – personal, economic, and social.
It is clear that the highest price is paid by women and others from the periphery – geographic, economic, ethnic, social, and cultural – who now, as always, are excluded from the public eye and dominant discourse.
The time for women is now. We demand that words and actions be conducted in another language.
