The ODS Campaign, based in Palestine, in 2020 published a Manifesto which included this 10-point Political Program:
A Single Constitutional Democracy. One Democratic State shall be established between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan
River as a state belonging to all its citizens, including the Palestinian refugees. All citizens will enjoy equal rights, freedom and security. The State shall be a constitutional democracy,
the authority to govern and make laws emanating from the will of the people. All its citizens shall enjoy equal rights to vote, nominate candidates for any post and take part in the country’s
Right of Return, of Restoration and of Reintegration into Society. The single democratic state will fully implement the
Right of Return of all Palestinian refugees and their descendants, those who were expelled in 1948 and thereafter, whether living in exile abroad or currently living in historic Palestine,
including those with Israeli citizenship. The State will aid them in returning to their country and to the places from which they were expelled. It will help them rebuild their personal lives
and to be fully reintegrated into the country’s society, economy and polity. The State will do everything in its power to restore to the refugees their private and communal property and/or
Individual Rights. No State law, institution or practices shall discriminate among its citizens on the basis of ethnic
identity, national or cultural belonging, or on the basis of color, gender, language, religion, political opinion, property or sexual orientation. The state will grant all its citizens the
right to freedom of movement and the right to reside anywhere in the country. The state will guarantee to all the citizens equal rights in all levels and institutions and will guarantee free
thought and freedom of opinion. Alongside religious marriage the State will provide civil marriage.
Collective Rights. Within the framework of a single democratic state, the Constitution will also protect collective rights
and the freedom of association, whether national, ethnic, religious, class or gender. Constitutional guarantees will ensure that all languages, arts and cultures can flourish and develop
freely. No group or collectivity will have any privileges, nor will any group or collectivity have any control or domination over others. The Constitution will deny the Parliament the
authority to enact any laws that discriminate against any community, be it ethnic, national, religious, cultural or class.
Immigration: Normal procedures of obtaining citizenship will be extended to those willing to immigrate to the country.
Constructing a Shared Civil Society. The Stateshall nurture a vital civil society comprised of common civil institutions,
in particular educational, cultural and economic.
Economy and Economic Justice. Our vision seeks to achieve social and economic justice. Economic policy must address the
decades of exploitation and discrimination which have sown deep socioeconomic gaps among the people living in the country. The income distribution in Israel/Palestine is more unequal than in
any country in the world. A State seeking justice must develop a creative and long-term redistributive economic policy to ensure that all citizens have equal opportunity to attain education,
productive employment, economic security and a dignified standard of living.
Commitment to Human Rights, Justice and Peace. The Stateshall uphold international law and seek the peaceful resolution of
conflicts through negotiation and collective security in accordance with the United Nations Charter. The State will sign and ratify all international treaties on human rights and its people
shall reject racism and promote social, cultural and political rights as set out in relevant United Nations covenants.
Our Role in the Region. The ODS Campaign will join with all progressive forces in the Arab world struggling for democracy,
social justice and egalitarian societies free from tyranny and foreign domination. The State shall seek democracy and freedom in the Middle East, so that the rights of the region’s peoples
and citizens will be guaranteed and its many communities, religions, traditions and ideologies shall be respected. That should include respect for the peoples’ right to struggle for equality
and freedom of thought. Achieving justice in Palestine will contribute measurably toward these goals and the aspirations of the region’s peoples.
International responsibility. On a global level, the ODS Campaign views itself as a part of the democratic and progressive
forces striving for an alternative global order that shall be pluralistic and sustainable, more just, egalitarian and humanistic and free of exploitation, racism, intolerance, oppression,
wars, colonialism and imperialism. This new world order will be based on human dignity and respect for the people’s rights to freedom and just distribution of resources and will provide a
healthy and sustainable environment.
