"Apartheid: from South Africa to Palestine" (Thursday, November 15)

Join the Students Against Israeli Apartheid and Salim Vally for "Apartheid: from South Africa to Palestine" Vally is a South African activist and a former regional executive member of the high school South African Student's Movement (SASM). He is the chairperson of the Palestine Solidarity Committee and the Anti-War Coalition in South Africa and currently a visiting scholar at the School of Social Sciences at York University. The event is part of the 5th Annual Week against the Apartheid Wall – called for by the Palestinian Grassroots Anti-Apartheid Wall Campaign and its popular committees – to mark 60 years of dispossession. The Campaign has called on the world to take action from November 9 – 16 to raise awareness of the global silence and complicity with Israel's apartheid regime and the importance of the movement for boycott, divestment and sanctions (to find out more about all the events planned in Toronto for this week, including CAIA's next Chapters/Indigo picket, click here).
