Hello supporters of the Green Movement,
After a long time that this blog hasn’t seen much action, I am going to make an effort of reviving it, for the sake of those of you who – like me – want to keep an eye on what’s going on with the movement even though the elections have been and gone, and want to do what we can for the principles we voted for despite the fact that the movement did not make it into the Knesset.
I’m a soldier in present, a guide for the Society for Nature Protection in Israel’s youth movement in the past, and a free civilian in Israel come August. Last year, I was eager for elections to come, but the nearer I came to the elections, I felt more and more like the things I wanted to vote for – a rational left-wing voice that puts nature protection and social issues as a top priority – did not exist. My voting considerations were between bad and worse. When my mom told me that I should look up the Green Movement, I found a party that stood for everything I do, that suggests real solutions to real problems instead of just dancing around the issues. I was crushed when the results were published the day after the elections. Fortunately, that wasn’t the end, and the Green Movement is still doing everything it can outside of the Knesset halls to make the difference I voted for.
My goal here is to keep everyone following the English blog updated on the Green Movement’s doings, post articles about different issues, and translate some of the Hebrew articles.
