8TH INTERNATIONAL ISRAELI APARTHEID WEEK
5th-11th March 2012
Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) is an annual international series of events (including rallies, lectures, cultural performances, film screenings and multimedia displays) held in cities and campuses across the globe. IAW seeks to raise awareness about Israel’s apartheid policies towards the Palestinians and to mobilize support for the growing Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel.
During IAW 2012, artists and activists around the world are staging events in protest of this continued crime against humanity, as well as raising awareness and consciousness about the oppression of the Palestinian people.
This is a focussed movement of peaceful protest action, directed not at Israelis, but specifically at the racist apartheid government of Israel.
