This talk will explore the apartheid analysis and why the framework can be fittingly applied to Israeli colonialism, racism, and occupation. Through the lessons and experiences of South Africa, the speakers will explore the similarities and differences between the two contexts and speak in depth about Israeli Apartheid in order to expose the systemic racism and colonialism faced by all Palestinians, whether inside Israel proper, in the occupied territories, or as part of the largest refugee population in the world. The speakers will also talk about lessons and strategies from the international movement of Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions against South African apartheid and discuss how they can be applied to the current BDS movement for Palestine.
