Israeli Apartheid Week Opens Worldwide, As Netanyahu Confirms Discriminatory Regime

Global Actions Follow Record Turnout at Palestinian National BDS Conference
The 15th annual Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW), the largest global boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) mobilization for Palestinian rights, opens today with more than 80 events in 40 cities across Europe, North America and Palestine, featuring protests, lectures, film screenings, and cultural events. IAW is expected to be held in more than 200 cities worldwide. IAW officially kicked off Saturday the 16th in the occupied Palestinian city of Al-Bireh, where the Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC) convened the Sixth National BDS Conference – a grassroots, civil society gathering with over 900 participants.

The large BDS Conference in Palestine, and worldwide IAW mobilization in support of Palestinian human rights, are taking place against the backdrop of the far-right Israeli government’s public admission of its legalized and institutionalized racist rule over Palestinians. Last week, Prime Minister Netanyahu himself helped make the case for labeling the Israeli regime as apartheid, saying, “Israel is not a state of all its citizens. According to the basic nationality law we passed, Israel is the nation state of the Jewish people – and only it.”
