2011 annual report

We are pleased to present you with this report on the activities of New Profile, the feminist movement working to demilitarize Israeli society, in 2011. The period of the report covers a year in which a wave of popular protests and revolutions swept the globe, and the Middle East in particular. Israel has also had its ripple in this wave – the relatively massive J14 protests, in which many New Profile activists also took part. But by now, those protests have gone almost without a trace. Israel is on its way to electing a new, even more extremely 

hawkish, racist and anti-democratic parliament and government than the one it has now, and to kick off the election campaign, the Israeli government and military had orchestrated another round of hostilities, with a brutal assault on the people of Gaza and its suburbs.
