Brooklyn For Peace (sponsor)
March 15, 2013
Launched in 2005 after over 170 Palestinian civil organizations issued a call for a campaign of boycotts, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) against Israel, an annual international series of events has been held in cities and campuses around the world. Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) seeks to penetrate the consciousness of those uninformed about the apartheid nature of Israel, as defined by international law, that functions as a system characterized by institutionalized and systematic racial and religious segregation.
Join us for a discussion with Jared Malsin and Chris Hedges, who will each discuss their experiences as journalists in Palestine, including Gaza in the aftermath of Operation Cast Lead, and their experiences within the state of Israel.
