Take action against racism in Israeli Apartheid Week 2020!
History has shown us that when movements for justice unite to take on oppressive forces, we can and will win.
The struggle for justice in Palestine is a struggle against an institutionalised discriminatory framework of power which meets the legal definition of apartheid. This is the lived experience of Palestinians – whether those living under illegal military occupation in the West Bank, East Jerusalem or Gaza, as second class citizens in the state of Israel, or as refugees denied the right of return.
The Palestinian call for Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) is a call for global resistance to apartheid, rooted in the affirmation that challenging Israel’s system of racism and discrimination is a crucial component of a universal anti-racist struggle.
This year, IAW takes place on the week coinciding with the international day against racism and racial discrimination – the day we commemorate the massacre that took place in Sharpeville, South Africa at the hands of the apartheid government.
Join us in taking creative action during IAW 2020 against all discrimination and racism, including an end to UK complicity with Israeli apartheid.
