Israeli Apartheid Week, a Solidarity Protest for Palestine, at UC Berkeley
UC Berkeley Students Organize Israeli Apartheid Week in Solidarity with Palestine
From Monday February 4th through Friday the 8th, Students for Justice in Palestine held a series of protests and teach-in as part of Israeli Apartheid Week at UC Berkeley.

On Monday, human rights activist Mark Turner spoke about the time he spent working in the Balata Refugee Camp in Nablus. In 2003, Mark founded the Research Journalism Initiative (RJI), an interactive program that provides tools to teachers and students learning about the Occupation.

On Tuesday, there was a "Right to Education" teach-in. The event featured presentations by "FRESH!" (Freshly Redefining Education for Students through Hip-hop) and other local community education activists and a screening of the short film "Lucky Ahmed" on barriers students face in trying to complete their education under Occupation, prepared by student activists in the West Bank.

On Wednesday, there was a rally on Sproul Plaza with Barbara Lubin from Middle East Children's Alliance and other community leaders. photo Photos

On Thursday, Anna Baltzer, a volunteer with the International Women’s Peace Service, presented her experiences documenting human rights abuses in the West Bank and supporting Palestinian and Israeli nonviolent resistance to the Occupation.

On Friday, there was a "Apartheid and the Youth of Palestine" closing event. Ziad Abbas Co-Director of Ibdaa' Cultural Center (Dheisheh Refugee Camp, Bethlehem) and Journalist Nora Barrows-Friedman spoke at the Heller Multicultural Center.
