featuring keynote speakers Judith Butler and Ali Abunimah
Toronto: March 7 - 13, 2011
First launched in Toronto in 2005, IAW has grown to become one of the most
important global events in the Palestine solidarity calendar. Last year was
incredibly successful with over 55 cities worldwide participating in the
week's activities. In Toronto, IAW 2010 featured a full week of events
celebrating 5 years of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) successes.
IAW 2011 takes place following a year of incredible successes for the BDS
movement on the global level. Lectures, films, and actions will highlight
some of these successes along with the many injustices that continue to make
BDS so crucial in the battle to end Israeli Apartheid. Confirmed speakers in
Toronto include world-renowned philosopher Judith Butler and
Palestinian-American journalist Ali Abunimah!
