Israeli Apartheid Week – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Israeli Apartheid Week is an annual series of university lectures and rallies of the Israeli situation with the Palestinians held in February or March. According to the organization, “the aim of IAW is to educate people about the nature of Israel as an apartheid system and to build Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaigns as part of a growing global BDS movement.”[1] Since IAW began in Toronto in 2005, it has since spread to at least 55 cities around the world including locations in Canada, France, Germany, India, Italy, Austria, Jordan, Japan, Korea, Brazil, Botswana, Malaysia, the United Kingdom, the United States, South Africa, Mexico, Norway, Australia, Palestine,.[2][3][4][5][6][7]

Israeli Apartheid Week has garnered much controversy since its inception and has been criticized by some political figures as anti-Israeli and by some others as anti-Semitic.

The organizers said the week has “played an important role in raising awareness and disseminating information about Zionism, the Palestinian liberation struggle and its similarities with the indigenous sovereignty struggle in North America and the South African anti-Apartheid movement.” An international divestment campaign was also said to have gained momentum in response to the 2005 statement by over 170 Palestinian civil society organizations who called for boycotts, divestments and sanctions. They also claimed that important gains had been made in the campaign in countries like South Africa, the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States.

The years preceding 2008, a significant year in that it marked the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the state of Israel, had seen a sharp increase of literature and analysis that was said to have sought to document and challenge alleged Israeli apartheid, including reports issued by major international bodies and human rights organizations and findings published by political leaders, thinkers, academics, and activists. The efforts were also said to have highlighted the role that people and governments across the world could play in providing “solidarity with the Palestinian struggle by exerting urgent pressure on Israel to alter its current structure and practices as an apartheid state.”[8]

The Tenth Annual Israeli Apartheid Week has kicked off: an international event that raises awareness about Israel’s apartheid policies towards the Palestinians and to build support for the growing Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaign. In this edition of the debate, we’ll discuss why this event has gained popularity around the world, and why perhaps at no other juncture in time, today Israel has become more isolated than ever before. Does the threat of economic boycotts will affect Israel’s continued occupation of Palestinian territories? What should be done to end the Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands?

The 10th annual Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) has kicked off in the United States and Britain with similar events expected to be held in other parts of the world in March. University campuses across North America and the United Kingdom kicked off the events on Monday to build support for the growing Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaign. The IAW ceremonies, organized by Palestinian student groups or their allies, include lectures, meetings with speakers who oppose Israeli policies, including Israeli students who live abroad, film screenings and demonstrations calling for boycotts of Israel. Israeli Apartheid Week is being held in the United States and UK between February 24 and March 2. It is also expected to be observed in over 200 cities around the world. In England, events will take place at Oxford, Cambridge, the London School of Economics and other high-status institutions. According to organizers, there has been “a sharp increase of literature and analysis that has sought to document and challenge Israeli apartheid, including reports issued by major international bodies and human rights organizations and findings published by political leaders, thinkers, academics, and activists.” The apartheid regime of Israel denies about 1.7 million people in Gaza their basic rights, such as freedom of movement, jobs that pay proper wages, and adequate healthcare and education. In this edition of the show we discuss why this event has gained popularity around the world, and why perhaps at no other juncture in time, today Israel has become more isolated than ever before.

Occupy Bilderberg: The Fight for Transparency | The …

A new branch of Occupy emerged this summer, outside a luxury hotel conference centre not far from Washington DC. Occupy London was there

The black limos glide past the placards, the fingers pointing, the furious bullhorns, past the lines of security, and into the calm and leafy interior of the Westfield Marriott in Chantilly, Virginia. A limo slows at the gates and Henry Kissinger is spotted inside, the protestors start booing and cries of war criminal rise from the crowd. Another car approaches, flanked by security, and Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands bows her head to avoid the cameras. Peter Brabeck-Lemanthe, CEO of Nestl smirks and Bill Gates hides his face with his slender fingers.

CEO after CEO, Chairman after Chairman. From the CEO of Airbus to the Chairman of the Washington Post to the Lord Chancellor, Kenneth Clarke. All here for the annual three-day Bilderberg conference at the beginning of June. Around 130 powerful participants, cherry-picked from the highest levels of banking, diplomacy, government and commerce have cleared their schedules to attend. Ministers of Finance from Finland, Ireland, Poland. All the top people from Royal Dutch Shell, and the Chief Executive of BP. The summit is hosted in Europe for two to three years and then goes to North America usually in an election year. Rumour has it that the UKs been tipped to host the conference in 2013.

Most of the 800-strong crowd outside were Americans, but protesters had flown in from Germany and the UK. There were occupiers from Occupy Portland, Occupy Denver and Occupy London people wore Occupy Bilderberg T-shirts that proclaimed: More like the 0.01%. Many of the signs railed against the distasteful union of business and politics that was going on behind the security cordon.

The mood in the crowd was cheerful and good-humoured, except when a limo arrived and the catcalls began. The US protesters were incensed that their elected representatives were present, which meant they were violating the Logan Act which forbids US government officials to meet foreign representatives to discuss policy without the express permission of congress.

The UK had two elected representatives at this years conference our Lord Chancellor and Justice Secretary Kenneth Clarke and Nick Boules MP, of the hawkish Henry Jackson Society. Ken Clarke was snapped sneaking out of the conference after most of the protesters had gone home. Clarke is a longtime member of the Bilderberg Steering Committee, alongside Peter Sutherland (Chairman of Goldman Sachs International), Marcus Agius (Chairman of Barclays) and Daniel Vasella (the Chairman of pharmaceutical giant Novartis). The steering committee meets in absolute secret several times a year. What long-term goals does Clarke hold in common with these bankers and CEOs? It is time to subject these kind of extracurricular roles to closer scrutiny.

A statement of support for Occupy Bilderberg had been prepared by members of the Economics Working Group and endorsed by the Occupy London GA. The statement condemned the profound denial of a participatory, direct democracy that Bilderberg represents. And warned against the ever-increasing influence of unaccountable international bankers over our economic and democratic system. It was read out on the grass slopes outside the Westfields Marriott through a loudhailer, and livestreamed back around the world. A small blow for transparency was struck. When enough of these blows land, the security fences will fall. Until then, in the closing words of the statement of support: stay strong!
