[Posted by JA. Internationally, most of us only have the ability to offer the Paletinian people non-violent support, like BDS, against Israeli apartheid; BUT, the Palestinian people have a moral, human and international law right (which, for any other people, applies against any other brutal colonizer-invaders *except*, apparently, against Zionist Jews in Palestine) to BOTH non-violent *and* ARMED STRUGGLE -- as the Palestinian people so chose -- against Israeli/Zionist colonialism and oppression -- just like the ANC and, before that, the Vietnamese, or any other brutally colonized people did! In fact, after then apartheid South Africa, Israel is the LAST legally racist colonial apartheid state of its kind in the entire world.]

What is Israeli Apartheid Week?

Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) is an annual international series of events held in cities and campuses across the globe. The aim of IAW is to educate people about the nature of Israel as an apartheid system and to build Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaigns as part of a growing global BDS movement.

Last year, Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) took place in more than 40 cities across the globe. IAW 2009 happened in the wake of Israel’s barbaric assault on the people of Gaza. Lectures, films, and actions made the point that these latest massacres further confirm the true nature of Israeli Apartheid.

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 direct 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.

Speaker information and full programmes for each city will be available on http://www.apartheidweek.org.

Join us in making 2010 a year of struggle against apartheid and for justice, equality, and peace.
