Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) is an annual international series of events held in over 250 cities, communities and campuses across the globe. IAW events include rallies, protests, lectures, cultural performances, concerts, films, workshops and more. The aim of IAW is to raise awareness of Israel's apartheid policies
towards the indigenous Palestinians and serves to garner support for the
non-violent Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel
campaign, which seeks to bring an end to Israel's apartheid policies and
violations of international law.
Israeli Apartheid Week has been endorsed by over 85 South African organizations, political parties, trade unions, schools, SRC's and other
groups. IAW 2015 boasts more than 195 events across the country including public rallies, comedy shows, music concerts, protests and other activities. The 11th international Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) takes place in South Africa between the 2nd and 8th of March 2015.
