Israeli Apartheid Week

Comox Valley Mid-Islanders for Justice and Peace in the Middle East conduct its monthly one-hour demonstration Wednesday in Courtenay.

The ninth annual, world-wide Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) runs from March 4 to 8 in Canada.

IAW is an annual international series of events (including rallies, lectures, cultural performances, film screenings, multimedia displays and boycott of Israeli goods and actions) held in cities and campuses across the globe. Last year’s IAW included 215 cities participating worldwide.

IAW seeks to raise awareness about Israel’s 66-year occupation of Palestinian and to build support for the growing boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against goods produced in illegal Israeli settlements.

The Comox Valley Mid-Islanders for Justice and Peace in the Middle East (MIJPME) will conduct its monthly one-hour demonstration March 6 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Courtenay Library/ CVAG/ bowling alley intersection.
