It’s that time of the year again…Israeli Apartheid Week. Born on the campuses of Toronto in 2005, IAW has spread internationally, this year taking place in Palestine, South Africa, the UK, Norway, and in cities across Canada and the U.S.
The series of events are being held this week (February 3rd to 11th) in Canada, the U.S, and Palestine, and next week (February 11th to 18th) in South Africa and the U.K. The campaign, which includes workshops, lectures, films, demonstrations and cultural performances, is part of a broader international divestment campaign lead by over 170 civil society groups in Palestine, who issued a statement in July 2005 calling for boycott, divestment and sanctions against apartheid Israel.
