February 28 – March 14: Israeli Apartheid Week – Vancouver

2014 marks the 10th year that Israeli Apartheid Week has been marked.

Hafez-IAW-141Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) seeks to raise awareness about Israel’s apartheid policies towards the Palestinians and to build support for the growing Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaign. Reflecting the global grassroots rejection of Israel’s military and political aggression, IAW was held in more than 200 locations in 2012 and more than 150 cities in 2013.

All of the events below are taking place on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples.
