The Sixth Annual Israeli Apartheid Week
Solidarity in Action: Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions
Mark your calendars - the 6th Annual Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) will take place across the globe from from the 1st to the 14th of March 2010! Since it was first launched in 2005, IAW has grown to become one of the most important global events in the Palestine solidarity calendar. Last year, more than 40 cities around the world participated in the week's
activities, which took place in the wake of Israel's brutal assault against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. IAW continues to grow with new cities joining this year.
IAW 2010 takes place following a year of incredible successes for the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement on the global level. Lectures, films, and actions will highlight some of theses successes along with the many injustices that continue to make BDS so crucial in the battle to end Israeli Apartheid. Speakers and full programme available soon at Apartheid Week
If you are planning to organize IAW in your city in 2010, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Israeli Apartheid Video Contest
Put your ideas and convictions on film!
It Is Apartheid in partnership with Stop the Wall announce the first
international Israeli Apartheid Video Contest.
As part of the colonial conflict in Palestine, Israel has instituted a policy of apartheid that separates Palestinians from Israelis and Palestinians from each other, creating an oppressive and racially discriminatory system. It denies basic Palestinian rights to land, education, movement, and housing while devastating the economy, trying to undermine civil society, and forcing continuous displacement upon the majority of Palestinians.
You are invited to submit short [less than 5 minutes] videos on the theme of "Israeli Apartheid."
Videos should reflect the nature, realities, and/or consequences of the apartheid policy in Israel, in the occupied West Bank and Gaza and against Palestinian refugees in the diaspora.
