Week of Resistance to Israeli Colonialism and Apartheid

Week of Resistance to Israeli Apartheid and ولونياليسم - بيروت 2011
The 7th International Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) will take place across the globe in March 2011.

Since it was first launched in 2005, Israeli Apartheid Week has become one of the most important global events in the calendar for the Palestinian cause. Last year more than 55 cities world-wide organized events to end Israeli apartheid, including Beirut for the first time. IAW continues to grow as new cities join each year in response to the Palestinian call for Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions.

This year a group of youth activists has been working together to host the Week of Resistance Against Israeli Apartheid and Colonialism in Beirut from March 7th to 13th, 2011. Following the success of last year's first-ever Israeli Apartheid Week in Lebanon, we are excited to be planning a week-long program of events covering a variety of topics concerning Israeli apartheid and colonialism and its devastating affects in Palestine as well as in the Arab world and globally. Given the current revolutionary climate in the Arab world, we look forward to fostering a space for activists and community members to gather and discuss these pertinent issues.
