annual global Israeli Apartheid Week

As part of the annual global Israeli Apartheid Week* initiative (March 5 to 11), a group of organisations have come together to host an event on Sunday, March 11th from 2pm to 6pm at the Al Ansaar Hall in West Road, Overport.

'Roadmap to Apartheid,' the much-acclaimed documentary which examines similarities between Apartheid South Africa and Israel will be screened; and a discussion will be hel...d will Na'eem Jeenah the executive director of the Afro-Middle East Centre, and a student from Ramallah.

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 http://www.jpost.com/DiplomacyAndPolitics/Article.aspx?id=258409)

Please do attend and please pass the word on.

RSVP-ing is not compulsory but will be appreciated. RSVP via SMS on 083 785 5183 or via email at info@ilmsa.co.za
