Israeli Apartheid Week – Sydney Protest
SUNDAY MARCH 18 – 2PM
CUSTOMS SQUARE, CIRCULAR QUAY
Please join us at this event which is one of the international Israeli Apartheid Week events commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Nakba when 750,000 Palestinians were forced from their homes when the state of Israel was created and 70 years of ongoing oppression.
We will focus on the way the Israeli system of apartheid operates to deny Palestinians their rights and we will call for all Palestinian children to be released from Israeli prisons.
We need volunteers to help get signatures on a petition to the federal government to end the cruel and unlawful imprisonment of children by Israel.
Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) is an international series of events that seek to raise awareness of Israel’s apartheid system over the Palestinian people and to build support for the growing Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.
Sydney speakers will focus on the way the Israeli government has created a system of apartheid more pervasive than that experienced in South Africa. They demand that all 300 plus Palestinian children are released from Israeli jails.
