Israeli Apartheid Week-Montreal // March 6-15, 2017

Ten days of panels, workshops, film screenings, demonstrations and cultural events to raise awareness around the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israeli apartheid. Events are taking place at Concordia, UQÀM, Université de Montréal & McGill, as well as community venues in Montreal.

In opposition to apartheid and occupation
In solidarity with Palestinian resistance
In support of social justice struggles everywhere
This year marks the 13th year of Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) in Montreal, joining with similar IAWs around the world. We are hoping to continue building momentum for the BDS movement. Confirmed speakers from outside Montreal include: Dr. Nahla Abdo (Arab feminist scholar and activist), Remi Kenazi (Palestinian-American poet, writer & organizer), Saleem Haddad (author of debut novel “Guapa” & aid worker), Rania Khalek (independent journalist), Simona Sharoni (feminist scholar & activist.)
