The Sixth Annual ISRAELI APARTHEID WEEK
“Solidarity in action: Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions”
In Edmonton: March 1 – 6, 2010
Mark your calendars – the Sixth Annual Israeli Apartheid Week will take place across the globe, including Edmonton, from March 1-7, 2010!
First launched in Toronto in 2005, IAW has grown to become one of the most important global events in the Palestine solidarity calendar. Last year, more than 35 cities around the world participated in the week’s activities, which took place in the wake of Israel’s brutal assault against the people of Gaza.
In Edmonton, IAW 2009 featured a full week of events kicked off by Palestinian journalist and blogger Laila el Haddad.
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 actions will highlight some of these successes along with the many injustices that continue to make BDS so crucial in the battle to end Israeli Apartheid.
Speakers and full programme will be available soon on this site and at www.apartheidweek.org.
