DemocraTV: The independent voice of Israel’s moderate majority

Recent events have demonstrated the urgent need for a truly independent media outlet in Israel. 

Now, more than ever, Israeli democracy needs brave citizens who are unafraid to stand up and speak out. It is of the utmost importance that a free, hard-hitting, courageous, and uncompromising press exists in Israel that is independent and unafraid to address the problems faced by Israelis.

DemocraTV is Darkenu's answer to that call. Using the most advanced technology at our disposal, DemocraTV allows for extensive and autonomous live coverage of social movements. That goal has already resonated with the public in a profound way: In our first four months, our audience has watched 15 million minutes of viewed content, and more than 7,000 have become DemocraTV partners by contributing small monthly donations. Those partners, and everyone who supports us, influence the channel’s agenda, making it the largest crowdfunding project in the country.

The collaborative channel, in which the viewers choose the issues we focus on and interviewees themselves, provides targeted news-related programs. DemocraTV hosts key figures across the Israeli political spectrum and other leaders in Israeli society, such as supreme court judges and leading artists.

Following its early accomplishments, DemocraTV has embarked on its next phase, which includes permanent broadcasting and development of new, targeted, original content—including programs for teens, interactive news shows, and YouTube courses.

However, in order for this unprecedented venture to reach its intended impact, we are looking to expand our crowdfunding base. By becoming DemocraTV's newest partner, you can help them maintain a high level of content on this journey to preserve the hard-hitting and brave journalism all Israelis deserve under Lucy Aharish’s leadership.

Darkenu, the movement responsible for this unique initiative, is Israel’s largest non-partisan civil society movement. It organizes, amplifies, and empowers the moderate majority of Israelis to influence government policy and public discourse. As a grassroots movement, employees and volunteers work daily across Israel—door by door, town by town—setting up stalls in public centers, organizing house meetings, events, demonstrations, and protest vigils in an effort to strengthen justice, equality, mutual respect, and democratic values in Israel.

Its goals are to promote:

  1. Israel as a national home for the Jewish people and a democratic state for all its citizens.
  2. The necessity of a continuous effort to reach a diplomatic agreement that will eventually result in separation into two states and ensure Israel’s security.
  3. Social and economic justice, equal opportunities, and civil solidarity within the State of Israel.
  4. The eradication of incitement, division, corruption, and racism in all forms within the State of Israel.

Through this partnership, Darkenu and DemocraTV will remain at the forefront of the struggle for socio-economic justice and free media in Israel, while leading the pushback against extremist discourse threatening the very essence of Zionism.

OneVoice Statement on the Passing of Saeb Erekat

NEW YORK -- All of us at the OneVoice Movement are deeply saddened by the passing of senior Palestinian official and Secretary General of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), Saeb Erekat. 

Dr. Erekat was an early advocate of our work and a longtime friend of OneVoice. We shared a vision of an independent, viable and vibrant Palestine that lived up to the potential of its people. His decades of work and advocacy—for nonviolence, for justice, for a two-state solution—has influenced generations of peacebuilders and left a lasting impact on those working toward an end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. 

We send our heartfelt condolences to Dr. Erekat’s family, friends and colleagues during this painful time.

OneVoice Statement on Proposed Israeli Plans of West Bank Annexation

NEW YORK -- “From our founding in 2002, the OneVoice Movement has been driven by a vision of an independent and viable Palestinian state alongside a safe and secure Israel, where Palestinians and Israelis are able to each realize their national and individual aspirations, building a future based upon principles of security, justice, dignity and free of conflict. 

“That is why unilateral action like Israeli annexation of any part of the West Bank is so dangerous. Such a move would further limit already severe freedom of movement restrictions for Palestinians, create a hostile environment very likely leading to increased escalations of clashes and violent incidents, all while making the people of both countries less secure. 

“To be clear: an annexation agenda poses an irreversible threat to the prospects of a viable and independent Palestinian state on one hand and calls into question the ability to Israel to be a national home for the Jewish people and a democratic state for all its citizens on the other.

“All of these considerations are exactly why we have redoubled our efforts to raise awareness of the threats of annexation and mobilize opposition to it. This is our fight, and we will not stop working to help secure the right for self-determination, security and dignity for both Israelis and Palestinians.”
