Israeli Apartheid Week March 1-7

The theme for this year's Israeli Apartheid Week is
Solidarity in Action: Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions

Mark your calendars - the 6th International Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) will take place across the globe March 1-7th 2010!

Since it was first launched in 2005, IAW has grown by leaps and bounds. Last year, more than 40 cities around the world participated in the week's activities, which took place in the wake of Israel's brutal assault against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. IAW continues to grow with new cities joining this year.

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 theses successes along with the many injustices that continue to make BDS so crucial in the battle to end Israeli Apartheid.  Please use the resources below to plan your IAW events.

The Washington Post Doesn't Believe in Apartheid.
Richard Cohen's recent op-ed in the Washington Post denies that Israel is an apartheid state. Contact the Post (or your local paper) to let them know why Cohen is wrong.
