OneVoice Movement: Amplifying the Demand of the People for Ongoing Negotiations…

How is OneVoice Connected To The Negotiations Process? It was BORN to rekindle it.

· OneVoice was founded in the aftermath of the breakdown of the Camp David negotiations to amplify the voice of the overwhelming majority of Palestinian and Israeli citizens who cherish an end to the conflict and recognize the only way to achieve it is through a two state solution

· OneVoice began last year a campaign to urge the Israeli and Palestinian Heads of State to immediately commence ongoing negotiations, uninterrupted until the conclusion of a comprehensive peace agreement, within a year of commencing the process

o That means that we urge the leaders to complete an agreement no later than Nov 27 2008

· Over 620,000 global citizens, including roughly 300,000 Israelis and 300,000 Palestinians, have thus far joined the movement as signatories to the OneVoice Mandate and/or the OneVoice Principles;

· When we began the campaign, many thought it was too risky and irresponsible to demand negotiations when no prospects for peace where in the horizon, let alone uninterrupted negotiations till the conclusion of an agreement, and let alone a comprehensive agreement

· OneVoice has had an opportunity to influence their leaders and share its message directly with them, including when it succeeded in getting President Abbas, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, and President Peres together in Davos to hear the message from the people; President Abbas and Foreign Minister Livni, both during the Davos session and thereafter, acknowledged the impact and inspiration from seeing hundreds of their young speak to them with passion about their support for their leadership to end the conflict.

· A delegation of OneVoice activists, youth leaders, and executive directors from Gaza, Ramallah, Tel Aviv, New York and London will be available in Annapolis, Jerusalem, and New York City to represent and speak on behalf of the 620,000+ citizens that have signed on to the OneVoice Mandate demanding immediate negotiations, uninterrupted till the conclusion of a two state agreement, no later than a year from now.
