The 13th annual Israeli Apartheid Week is here

Dear friends,

Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW http://apartheidweek.org/ ) 2017 is here, a series of events taking place in campuses and cities around the world, aiming to raise awareness of Israel's regime of settler colonialism and apartheid, and to build solidarity with the Palestinian-led boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement.

IAW is a huge global annual event and PSC has been working for the past few months with partners including War on Want, the BDS national committee and others to provide support and resources to the fantastic groups of student activists who have organised events across UK campuses.

You will have seen media coverage of the attempts by pro-Israel groups to lobby universities to prevent events going ahead. Students are standing firm and PSC is working with all key partners to support students in bringing the issues of justice for Palestinians to campuses all over the UK this week.

This year's wide range of events includes the opening plenary in London on Tuesday 28th February, 100 years of Palestinian resistance against settler colonialism (https://www.facebook.com/events/1097869287008470/ ), with poet and Dream Defenders activist Aja Monet; Farid Esack, veteran anti-apartheid activist; and Dr Karma Nabulsi.

Many other events including talks, film screenings, and exhibitions are taking place across the UK - see the Israeli Apartheid Week website for more.
