Weekly program that talks about the activities happening within civil society. This is being done mainly from an Arab-Israeli perspective.
- The first topic that was being discussed in the program by the Abraham Fund Initiative was the ‘Coalition against Racism’ that is currently campaigning against racism in Israel. The campaign is supported by a huge coalition of organisations and actors coming from the civil society and is also being supported by different celebrities. The main goal is to advocate against acts of racism that are occurring against the Arab minorities but also against other ethnic minorities such as for example the Ethiopians. During the show the coordinator of the coalition was being interviewed. http://www.fightracism.org/en/index.asp.
- The next case handled on the traditional domestic violence Arab Bedouin women in the Negev desert are facing. The issue that was put in the spotlight is the one of the obstacles these victims are facing in trying to file complaints addressed at the official authorities.
- After that the emphasis was being put on yesterday’s first of May events and more specifically the focus was put on the common Arab-Jewish struggle for more social justice.
- Finally, the upcoming elections of next summer were being discussed from the point of view of the Arab electorate. Will they go and vote or will they abstain from being active in the political area? A general feeling exist that there vote doesn’t make a difference, throughout Israeli political history there has for example only been one Arab minister. But if they do vote will they chose to vote for Arab politicians and parties or do they turn to the traditional Israeli ones, and how can this be explained?
