Death of a Builder

And once again the darkness is so deep, no light can drive it back. And the abyss is so dark, so mute and echoing, it swallows her up and wraps her in eternal silence. This is Salima, 62 years old, from Um al-Fahm. That night, five years ago, when cars converged on her humble home and the grandchildren alighted, she knew that Ahmed, one of her eight children, was no more. Five days of intensive care had stopped time in its tracks. Hope had not survived.


Conference on Safety in the Construction industry: “Its My Right to come back home Safely!”

This first of its kind national conference took place through the initiative of WAC-Maan, on Saturday, July 23rd, to discuss the topic of safety in the workplace. The main message of the conference to 160 participants from the field of construction and their wives was that workplace accidents are not an edict from Heaven. There is no accident that cannot be prevented. The goal of the conference was to shake the public in view of shocking numbers: 30 yearly deaths of construction workers, most of them Arabs or migrant workers, and the injuring of above 6,200.


In collaboration with the National Insurance: WAC opens a program to raise awareness regarding safety measures among Arab construction workers

A team of WAC’s safety department met the safety supervisor Hasan Shuli in Kabul on august 31. The meeting took place in order to advance the program to raise awareness regarding safety measures among Arab construction workers. The program is financed by the Fund of The Israeli Social Security called “Manof”. Mr. Shuli gave WAC’s team basic information on the safety regulations in the construction branch, and explained about the mutual responsibility of the worker and the employer. For example, the employer is obliged to inform workers about the dangers at the workplace, safety measures and the suitable safety equipment. The worker, on his part, must follow the safety regulations and use the existing safety measures.

As an organization committed to the rights of workers without distinction of religion, race, nationality, gender, or profession - democracy is our essence. We strongly oppose the authoritarian laws that the extreme government of Netanyahu, Lapid, Bennett, and Smotrich is attempting to impose.

Without democracy, there are no workers' rights, just as a workers' organization cannot exist under dictatorship.

only a victory of the democratic camp will enable a discussion on the Palestinian issue and lead to an alternative solution to occupation and apartheid while ensuring human rights and citizenship for all, Israelis and Palestinians alike. As long as the apartheid regime persists, the democratic camp will not succeed in defeating Israeli extremists. Therefore, we work to involve the Arab and Palestinian society in the protest.

We invite you:

To march with us in protests and to build an alternative, democratic, Jewish-Arab professional union in Israel. Join our quiet WhatsApp group today, "Marching with us in protest."
