Founded in 1995
Daam, The Workers' Party, was established in 1995 by Arab and Jewish social activists. This party is a socialist party and calls for strengthening the status of Jewish and Palestinian workers in order to bring about solidarity in society. Daam opposed the Oslo Accords at the time when they were signed, but supports the establishment of a Palestinian State within the 1967 borders and the dismantling of all Jewish settlements.
Socially, Daam is opposed to the privatization of social services and calls on the government to nationalize public services and industries that have been shut down. In addition, Daam advocates raising corporate tax and reducing the taxation of workers. Daam supports full equality between the sexes and demands increased enforcement of legislation intended to ensure equal pay for men and women.
