Israeli Apartheid Week Days Away

Alex Kane Feb 26, 2010

The sixth annual Israeli Apartheid Week is only a couple of days away–and New York City isn’t missing out on the action.

Meant as an education tool to show the world what organizers call Israel’s apartheid policies towards Palestinians and to further the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement (BDS) targeting Israel, dozens of cities around the world will be participating.

In New York, the events that have been announced so far include a panel discussion, a protest and more.

Here’s a list of events in New York City:

Tuesday, March 2, 7:30 PM
