“Disturbing the Peace” follows former enemy combatants – Israeli soldiers from elite units and Palestinian fighters, many of whom served years in prison – who have joined together to challenge the status quo and say “enough.” The film reveals their transformational journeys from soldiers committed to armed battle to nonviolent peace activists, leading to the creation of Combatants for Peace. In a world torn by conflict, in a place where the idea of peace has been abandoned, this story follows what happens when someone is willing to disturb the status quo and stand for the dream of a free and secure world.

Note that our location for this event will be at the Grand Cinema, 606 Fawcett Avenue, Tacoma.

Special Guests: Gillian Locascio (WA Fair Trade Coalition); Jewish Voice for Peace

    I showed this film in Lynnwood two months ago; I URGE all in the south end to view this film! If you stand for nonviolence, restorative justice and reconciliation, this is a MUST SEE!
