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.
This year Israeli Apartheid Week is taking place from February 24-March 2, it is a series of events including rallies, lectures, cultural performances, film screenings, and boycott Israel actions. (Don't forget to join us March 2nd at Boycott AIPAC! We will be protesting at the AIPAC policy conference at the Washington DC Convention Center from 8:30am-8:30pm with a special event from 2-4, so stop by for any part of the day!)
