** Dates for 2018 to be confirmed **
Jerusalem March for Pride and Tolerance has become the largest and most significant civil rights movement in Jerusalem. It has been going on for over 15 years and symbolizes a persistent struggle for equal rights, liberty, personal security and protection.
About the 2017 march –
This year the Jerusalem March for Pride and Tolerance will march for the 15th time and has become the lagest and most significant civil right movment in Jerusalem. Lead by the Jerusalem Open House, It has been a decade and a half of presistant struggle for our exsistance in Jerusalem our city, for our equal rights, liberty, personal security and protection. Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, a city where populations meet, a place where the social fabric is complex and fragile, the spiritual centre of the three monotheistic religions – and also the place where one of the most important LGBTQ struggles comes to, at the eyes of the Knesset members.
We will arrive in masses from Jerusalem and around the country. Together we’ll prove the hatred and violence will not intimidate us, will not scare us away, will not discourage us. We’ll fight the unjustified hatred with love. We’ll answer the ignorance with tolerance. We will stand together, the free and pluralistic community in Israel, whoever believes in our right for equality and liberty, at the close of one year after the hate crime, and say loud and clear: we are here to stay. Especially this year. Especially in Jerusalem.
