Missions to Israel

Each year, AILD conducts study missions to Israel.

The purpose of the missions is to allow ALP activists and trade union leaders to experience Israel and Palestine for themselves.

Mission participants establish links and bonds with key Labor Party officials, Labor Members of Knesset and trade union leaders.

Participants also meet with other key decision makers and thought leaders, and get to hear about how the conflict impacts on Jewish Israelis, Arab Israelis  and Palestinians.

The missions also focus on a range of issues beyond the Israeli-Arab conflict. Participants are often surprised to learn that Australia and Israel have many social justice challenges in common.

If you work in the labor movement in Australia and would like to participate in an AILD study mission, please send us an expression of interest.


Gay Pride

Tel Aviv Gay Pride has become one of the biggest events of the year in Tel Aviv. Visitors from all over Israel and the world come out in full force to celebrate. The city lights up in color and energy, proving its reputation as the gay capital of the Middle East, and perhaps even one of the gay capitals of the World.

Tel Aviv Gay Pride Week takes place every June, with a surge of gay-friendly events taking place across the city, culminating on the Friday with the famed pride parade.

The parade concludes at the stunning Tel Aviv promenade by the shores of the beautiful Tel Aviv coastline where it turns into an epic adrenaline-charged beach party featuring leading DJs and live performances, lasting well into the small hours of the night.

If you are a member or friend of Rainbow Labor in Australia and would like to march as part of the Israeli Labor Party contingent, please send us an expression of interest.”
