OFFICIAL SPEECH: NATIONAL SPEAKER OF SA PARLIAMENT ON ISRAELI APARTHEID & BDS
We recap some highlights from the recent 12th #IsraeliApartheidWeek campaign held in South Africa exactly a month ago between 7 and 13 March. The week long annual initiative included successful sports events, comedy shows, music concerts, protests, public lectures, seminars and much more.
We join the over 85 participating organisations across the country in celebrating the incredible sense of internationalism and solidarity expressed in last month’s IAW. The campaign affirmed South Africa’s support for the people of Palestine and we salute all groups, high-ranking politicians, government officials and ordinary citizens from across the political, religious and ethnic spectrum who participated.
NEW REPORT: EVIDENCE OF RACISM AND SEGREGATION AT ISRAELI HOSPITALS
Israeli Apartheid requires our consistent and long-term activism, campaigning, boycotting, protest and lobbying. The non-violent boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel is based on the long-term, consistent and previously successful boycott of Apartheid South Africa.
International isolation played a significant role in challenging and ending South African Apartheid, BDS (initiated by the oppressed Palestinians, backed by progressive Israelis and supported by growing numbers across the world) is proving to do the same in terms of Israeli Apartheid.
The international isolation of Israel it is hoped will lead to the necessary conditions for a just peace to be negotiated - similar to what occurred in South Africa and brought about a democratic country for all our people. BDS South Africa is a local South African office (together with other Palestine solidarity groups, trade unions, political formations and human rights organizations) advancing, in South Africa, the international (Palestinian-led) BDS campaign against Israel.
