On Tuesday February 17th, a coalition of student groups, palestine solidarity organizations and faculty launched Israeli Apatheid Week in Montreal.
Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) marks its fifth anniversary in the wake of Israel’s horrific attacks and continued siege on Gaza. IAW is an annual international series of educational and cultural events held in cities and campuses across the globe. Its aim is to broaden public awareness about the nature of Israel as an apartheid state and to build a worldwide movement of Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) against the Israeli regime, similar to those undertaken against Apartheid South Africa in the 1980s.
Israeli Apartheid Week Montreal is organized by a number of diverse groups across campuses citywide and endorsed by over 35 organizations.
