The 9th Annual Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) kicked off on February 25th of this year. Starting in Europe, then in Palestine, and opening this weekend in North America before moving on to South Africa. These are only some of the confirmed dates; February and March will play host to a number of informative events in countries all over the world.
Now almost a decade running, IAW has become more than an annual event. It is a global institution. Last year, events were held in 215 cities worldwide. IAWs include lectures, film screenings, workshops and more, all organized to educate and enlighten audiences on Israeli apartheid -- its historical context and present day consequences.
