Freedom is a Constant Struggle
Movement Intersections Across Palestinian, Indigenous, and Black Struggles
Toronto — 8 March 2016.
First launched in Toronto in 2005, IAW has grown to become one of the most important global events in the Palestine solidarity calendar. This year, IAW took place in more than 150 cities across the globe. The week aims to raise awareness about Israel's ongoing practices of apartheid, occupation and dispossession against the Palestinian people. Lectures, films, and creative actions will build support for the Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movement.
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 2016 a powerful contribution to the Palestinian struggle for freedom and justice.
Moderated by University of Toronto Divest Campaign. Presentations by:
- Kwara Kekana is the national spokesperson for the BDS-South Africa.
- Remi Kanazi is a poet, writer and organizer based in New York City. His latest collection of poetry was published by Haymarket Books: Before the Next Bomb Drops.
