13th Annual Israeli Apartheid Week
Toronto, March 13-17, 2017
100 YEARS OF SETTLER COLONIALISM,
100 YEARS OF POPULAR STRUGGLE FOR JUSTICE
Mark your calendars! The 13th Annual Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) will take place in Toronto from March 13 to 17.
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 will take 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 performances will build support for the Palestinian Boycott, Divest...ment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement.
This year’s IAW will reflect on 100 years of resistance to settler colonialism across historic Palestine since the issuance of the Balfour Declaration in 1917. The Week will also link the history of Palestinian resistance to the struggles of the Indigenous peoples on whose territories we live, work, and study, and who are resisting settler colonial violence and dispossession. Our speakers this year will include Vijay Prashad, Lee Maracle, and Hind Awwad, among others.
Israeli Apartheid Week in Toronto is organized by Students Against Israeli Apartheid (SAIA), the Coalition Against Israeli Apartheid (CAIA), the University of Toronto Graduate Students’ Union (UTGSU) BDS Committee, Faculty for Palestine, and the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 3902 BDS Committee.
The full program will be made available soon at www.apartheidweek.org and www.uoftdivest.com/iaw17.

Judaism's holiest site--and FYI, IAW Jew-haters, it's a lot older than both the
Balfour Declaration and Islam. That means that the Jews were there first--
and are therefore earlier indigenes than the Palestinians.
