As the Israeli labor movement resists the right-wing Sharon governments attempts
to put the economic crisis accelerated by the illegal occupation of the West
Bank and Gaza on the backs of the working people, we need to hear their voices
on why peace in the Middle East is necessary. So watch for Le Blancs reports
from the cities and towns where Communists, religious, peace and labor activists
and elected officials are organizing for a negotiated settlement to establish
two states.

Read about their efforts to end the right-wing Sharon governments aggression.
Find out more about why the establishment of two states can provide a new balance
of forces despite the Bush administrations attempts to continue their control
of the region and its oil with ‘pre-emptive military action.’

Check the People’s Weekly World for audio feeds from the region, including interviews with
the activists who are organizing for peace. Look for interviews in the next
two weeks with the people who are suffering from the impact of U.S. policies
