A look at a grassroots struggle for social change.

In Learning To Change In Israeli and Palestinian Communities, producer Bairbre Flood travels from Tamra to Tel Aviv, and Nazareth to Jerusalem, to meet women involved in the grassroots struggle for social change.

 ‘It’s in the community, it deals with women, students and children; and it deals with Jewish and Arab, so I cannot find a more holistic way to make a change here in my society.’  - Fida Nara, the Palestinian co-director of Mahapach-Taghir

For this documentary, Bairbre Flood met with women from Tamra to Tel Aviv, Nazareth to Jerusalem: an incredible network working together to fight discrimination, social exclusion and domestic violence.

She spoke to members of Mahapach-Taghir (change in Hebrew-Arabic) and Sadaka-Reut (friendship in Arabic-Hebrew), and to women from all communities, to see how they're working on the ground in marginalised areas.

In a region renowned for conflict, these women’s struggle for community and solidarity across sectarian lines is even more remarkable.

CREDITS: "Learning To Change In Israeli and Palestinian Communities" was produced and presented by Bairbre Flood, and supported by the Simon Cumbers Media Fund.

‘Learning To Change In Israeli and Palestinian Communities’ was first broadcast on Newstalk 106-8FM on Sunday 23rd June at 7am, with a repeat broadcast on Saturday 29th June at 9pm
