The Israel Apartheid Week has started in Gaza and in many cities around the world. This is aimed at mobilizing grassroots support for the BDS campaign to isolate apartheid Israel in the global community, replicating the resistance movement against the South African apartheid.

The week started with a message of solidarity to the Palestinians of the Gaza Strip from Mandela Mandela, the grandson of late South African leader Nelson Mandela.

As part of its events, the BDS chose to screen a movie about horrors experienced by a young girl during Nakba, the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians by Zionists in 1948.

Palestinian institutions play an important role in informing people of the history of Palestine through different mediums in order to build a generation that is capable of reclaiming its rights.

The BDS movement has stressed the need to press ahead with the campaigns against the Israeli apartheid, especially because the regime has intensified its persecution to maintain a system of settler-colonial oppression and domination over Palestinian lives and land.

In Israel Apartheid Week, Palestinians reaffirm their commitment to resisting occupation, exploitation, oppression, and apartheid like any other people-by all means permitted under international law and the UN General Assembly resolution, which includes armed struggle.
