Sergio - Programme Director - Alternative Information Centre Jerusalem
What is your motivation to work towards peace?
We live in a state of apartheid in the state of Israel and I believe that the only way to have a sustainable life in this piece of land is by ending apartheid and creating a democratic state where all people enjoy equal rights. I don't prefer one or two states but I support the situation of ending apartheid.
What is your vision for the future?
Peace will be possible the moment we can establish a democratic situation because the reason for war in this area is colonial violence. The assumption by state officials is that they can bomb and destroy anyone of their neighbours, anyone they want, the Palestinians, the Syrians, the Jordanians, or the Egyptians. Only by overcoming this colonial attitude will we be able to achieve peace.
