Boycott Calls Against Israel
More Israeli academics participating "Israeli Apartheid Week"

Israeli Apartheid Week comes to New York City
Press Release, Israeli Apartheid Week, 9 February 2007


The 3rd annual Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) will take place in New York
City from February 10-17 2007. It will be a week-long series of events
organized by a coalition of different groups in the city and will feature
lectures, film screenings, and cultural activities. Concurrent events are
being held in Canada and the United Kingdom. "This week of events, being
held in New York for the first time, adds to the growing international
chorus of opposition to Israeli apartheid that includes voices of
Palestinians, Israelis, South Africans, and many others who stand for
justice," says Ryvka Bar Zohar, an organizer of the week.

The aim of IAW is to push forward the analysis of Israel as an apartheid
state and to gather support for the international boycott, divestment, and
sanctions campaign called for by over 170 Palestinian civil society
organizations in 2005. The events of the week are organized around the
three demands outlined in this call: full equality for Arab-Palestinian
citizens of Israel, an end to the occupation and colonization of the West
Bank and Gaza, and the implementation of the right of return and
compensation for Palestinian refugees pursuant to UN resolution 194.

"Israeli apartheid has created a system where Palestinians live either as
second-class citizens in Israel, as occupied subjects in the West Bank or
as refugees denied the right to return to their homes" said Ahmad Shokr,
another organizer of IAW. Shokr adds that "by supporting the boycott,
divestment, and sanctions campaign the international community can isolate
the apartheid regime and work toward a future where all inhabitants of the
land can live in dignity as equals."

Proudly Present The Third Annual:


Toronto, Ontario
February 12-17, 2007


For the third consecutive year, Israeli Apartheid Week will take place in
Toronto from February 12-17, 2007. This year we continue to work towards
building a collective understanding of the Zionist ethnic
cleansing, colonization and occupation of Palestine. The series of events
will include nightly talks and presentations from some of the leading
activists and analysts in the anti-apartheid movement such as Bonita
Lawrence, Joel Kovel, Walter Lehn, and Jamal Zahalka. The week will
culminate in a day of action on February 17th as part of the growing
boycott, divestment, and sanctions campaign against Israeli Apartheid.

The apartheid analysis put forward during Israeli Apartheid Week in
previous years has played an important role in raising awareness and
disseminating information about Zionism, the Palestinian liberation
struggle, as well as the connections with the Aboriginal sovereignty
struggle on Turtle Island and the South African Anti-Apartheid movement.
Rapidly spreading on a global scale, this year, Israeli Apartheid Week
will be taking place simultaneously in Toronto, Montreal, New York,
Oxford, Cambridge and London.

As Israel and its global backers like "Canada" and the "United States"
tighten the strangulation hold on the Palestinian people in an attempt to
provoke Palestinian infighting; and while the Israeli military
continues its brutal daily assault on Palestinian life, it is crucial that
people in the rest of the world wake up to the apartheid nature of the
Israeli state, and realize that it is our collective responsibility to
expose and isolate this racist regime until apartheid is dismantled.
