BROKEN ENGLISH COLLECTIVE
Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) is an annual international series of events (including rallies, lectures, cultural performances, film screenings, multimedia displays and boycott of Israel actions) held in cities and campuses across the globe. Last year’s IAW was incredibly successful with over 215 cities participating worldwide.
IAW seeks to raise awareness about Israel's apartheid policies towards the Palestinians and to build support for the growing Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel. Inspired by the ongoing popular resistance across historic Palestine and the intersections being made globally between various struggles with Palestine, we hope to make Israeli Apartheid Week 2017 a powerful contribution to the Palestinian struggle for freedom and justice.
Organized by Students Against Israeli Apartheid Carleton
We recognize that all our events and our organizing takes place on unceeded, Algonquin territory and this is part of a continued process of colonization by the Canadian state. Our opposition to Israeli Apartheid also means our active opposition to Apartheid here in Canada.
