Israeli Apartheid Week

#UnitedAgainstRacism

Overview

Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) is a tool for mobilizing grassroots support on the global level for the Palestinian struggle for justice. It is a grassroots mechanism to raise awareness about Israeli apartheid and to mobilize support for strategic BDS campaigns to help bring an end to this system of oppression.

IAW provides an opportunity to network and strengthen the links between the Palestinian liberation struggle and other struggles against racism, oppression, and discrimination. In 2022, as in every year since 2005, we will once again join our voices to denounce apartheid and celebrate our diversity. This year, we plan to shed light on the role of culture, and art in particular, in decolonizing our minds in our collective struggles against cultural appropriation and oppression. From March to April, communities around the globe will come together to organize inspiring actions and events to show that now, more than ever, we are #UnitedAgainstRacism.

    On the occasion of the Israeli Apartheid Week, the Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and International Affairs (IFI) and the Palestinian Cultural Club at the American University of Beirut (AUB), cordially invite you to a panel discussion to commemorate this international effort. The event titled "New International Discourse on Palestine: Shaping the Path Forward" will take place on Tuesday, April 19, 2022, from 10:30 am to 12:00 pm on Zoom and in IFI’s conference room (4th floor). This discussion aims at studying the prevalence of the human rights/apartheid rhetoric on the international level by discussing the latest report by Amnesty titled “Israel’s Apartheid against Palestinians: Cruel System of Domination and Crime against Humanity.” It also seeks to reflect on how Palestinians at home and abroad are reacting to this discourse to reinforce their case to the international community in general, and most importantly how the use of such a discourse raises questions regarding the failure of the two-state solution negotiations and the alternatives presented.

Only Liberated Minds Can Dismantle Apartheid 

“We are reminded that just as we fought together to defeat apartheid in South Africa, we need to forcefully challenge Israeli apartheid as it is deployed against the Palestinian people today.” – Angela Davis

Fighting oppression and apartheid requires liberated minds. This year, we plan to shed light on the role of culture, and art in particular, in decolonizing our minds in our collective struggles against cultural appropriation and oppression. 

Under the banner United Against Racism, Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) this year celebrates cultures of resistance, exploring the intersectional ties between the Palestinian liberation struggle and global struggles for justice. In IAW, we promote BDS campaigning as the most effective form of solidarity with our struggle for freedom, and we share global experiences in countering cultural erasure and cultural imperialism. 

This year, we are taking our actions back to the streets, campuses, and community spaces, wherever health and safety conditions allow. 

Despite decades of ruthless Israeli ethnic cleansing and brutal repression, Palestinians from all parts of historic Palestine, as well as in exile, took to the streets last May to challenge Israel’s regime of occupation, apartheid and settler colonialism. In the process, we have dismantled psychological colonial walls that divide us. 

Simultaneously, the recognition of Israel as an apartheid state is becoming increasingly mainstream, and we are witnessing unprecedented support for the cultural and academic boycott of Israel. Apartheid Israel is realizing that its South Africa moment is nearing.

More than two years of pandemic have revealed and worsened the existing global inequalities and destructive forces of racial capitalism, militarism, surveillance and other tools of oppression. Yet, affirming their profound aspiration for emancipation, communities have continued to resiliently resist oppression and struggle for social, racial, gender, economic and climate justice. They’ve insisted on freedom and dignity for all, building networks of people power and international solidarity across cultures and borders with inspiring creativity.

In this IAW, with liberated minds and souls, we embark on a radical process of hopeful, globalized resistance, transformation, and emancipation.

This year, IAW will take place between March 21st - April 18th across the globe, as we will be organizing a series of on-the-ground actions and online events. 

All Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) activities must conform to the BDS movement’s anti-racist principles and respect its affiliation guidelines. Any activity that fails to do so cannot be accepted as part of IAW.

Mark your calendars based on where you’re located, submit events for publication on our global calendar here, and stay tuned for our detailed programs.

2022 Global Rally

Save the date for the 2022 Global Rally Against Israeli Apartheid on Saturday, March 26th at 10AM EST / 3PM GMT / 5PM Palestine!

On this day, we will be joined by artists from around the world centering art and culture as critical arenas of our collective resistance to Israeli apartheid and all forms of racism and oppression. From dance, to music, to poetry, the rally will highlight the critical role that culture and art play in decolonizing our minds. 

This rally comes as part of the Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW), which over the last 18 years has propelled discussion of Israeli apartheid and organizing for Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaigns into the popular narrative in order to help bring an end to this crime against humanity. 
This year, from March to April, communities around the globe will come together to organize inspiring IAW actions and events to show that now, more than ever, we are #UnitedAgainstRacism. For more information on Israeli Apartheid Week check out the website here.

Impact

 

Since its beginnings in 2004, IAW has organized thousands of events in hundreds of cities worldwide. Thanks to IAW, Israel's apartheid policies of institutionalized racism and systematic oppression against the Palestinian people are increasingly difficult to hide and whitewash.
IAW is a collective growing success that fuels the global BDS movement's unstoppable growth in the Palestinian struggle for freedom, justice, and equality.
Now more than ever, let's continue to stand together.
