film stillTHE STRUGGLE FOR PEACE introduces grassroots organizations with very different perspectives on how to bring about a peaceful settlement to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.

As the video introduces such groups as "Women in Black," made up of Palestinians and Israelis who held weekly vigils in twenty locations to protest Israel's occupation of the West Bank and Gaza, one of the many Israeli soldiers who risked imprisonment by refusing to serve in the Occupied Territories states that "The purpose of the Israeli Defense Forces is supposed to be to defend our nation, not to oppress others."

As Israelis and Palestinians warily begin their new coexistence, THE STRUGGLE FOR PEACE reveals a land which had long been working for peace.
