Boycott Calls Against Israel
Israeli Apartheid Week with [U Haifa] Dalit Baum, [Sapir College] Eyal Sivan and [U Leicester UK] Claudia Prestel

 

 

Editorial Note:

Israeli Apartheid Week has become a very successful way to delegitimize Israel on campuses across the world.

Spurred by the success of the boycott movement against South Africa, Palestinian activists pushed for the idea of branding Israel as an apartheid state. They were helped by radical Israeli scholars such as Oren Yiftachel who published a number of works describing Israel's alleged creeping apartheid. The apartheid label was instrumental in launching the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, which is popular on campuses. As IAM reported, radical Israeli academics have supported the BDS movement.

The Eighth Annual Israeli Apartheid Week
Feb 20 - 24, 2012
www.apartheidweek.org

First launched in 2005, IAW has grown to become one of the most important global events in the Palestine solidarity calendar.
In an open letter dated October 21-2011, Palestinian students wrote “we hope you put BDS at the forefront of your campaigns and join
together for Israeli Apartheid Week, the pinnacle of action across universities worldwide”. In response, Palestine Student Societies are
coming together for the 8th annual Israeli Apartheid Week in support of Palestinian Civil Society's call for Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS).

Speakers: Tom Anderson and Therezia Cooper.

THIS EVENT IS FREE.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Taking its cue from the unified Palestinian call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel, Targeting Israeli Apartheid examines the Israeli economy and details the Israeli and international companies complicit in Israeli state repression. Based on original research in Palestine, the book shows how these companies can be targeted and provides the international BDS movement with the information necessary to bring the Palestinian struggle to the doorsteps of those who profit from Israeli apartheid.
