Entry is free but food; soft drinks and educational material will be sold to raise funds for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) South Africa campaign.

We urge everyone to recognise the impact of Israeli Apartheid Week which is now in its eight year. This can easily be seen in Israel's intention to dispatch a convoy of 100 Israelis worldwide during the week, to defend its state (see

Tropical storm all set to hit Durbs

Durban - Disaster management teams are on standby for a tropical cyclone expected to hit the Northern Coast of KwaZulu-Natal this weekend, a municipal official said on Friday. "Disaster teams are on high alert and ready to respond to any si...tuation," said eThekwini spokesperson Thabo Mofokeng.

The SA Weather Service earlier warned that the storm system would dump an "extreme" amount of rain on the region over the next two to three days.

"Areas around Kosi Bay, St Lucia, and Richard's Bay can expect up to 400mm of rain over this period," weather spokesperson Hannelee Doubell said.

Mofokeng advised people staying next to rivers to keep important documents in a safe place. Durban's fire department and metro police could be contacted on 031 361 0000.

The amount of rain expected was of an "extreme nature", and was last experienced when tropical cyclone Domoina hit KwaZulu-Natal in 1984.

"Domoina brought between 400 and 600mm of rain over a period of two to three days," Doubell said.

She said the system should start weakening by Tuesday.
