Israel Launch of AILD

The Israel launch of Australia Israel Labor Dialogue took place last month in Israel. AILD aims to promote a dialogue between two Labor parties that have helped define the characters of their respective countries. The new group was launched by Hilik Bar, a Labour member of the Israeli Parliament and the Secretary General of the Israeli Labour Party and Nathan Lambert, a National Assistant Secretary of the Australian Labor Party.

The launch took place during the 4th trade union mission of Australians organised by Trade Unions Linking Israel and Palestine (TULIP), and was attended by members of the youth wing of the Israeli Labour Party.

Launching the new group, both Bar and Lambert spoke the common ideals of the two parties, their shared history, and the many challenges they have in common.

The Australian launch of AILD is expected to take place in August 2014.
