UC Irvine:Israeli Apartheid Week: A Call to Boycott, Divest, and Sanction Israel

May 14 marks the 62nd anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba (Catastrophe) and the beginning of the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian people. The repressive occupation continues today, enforced through policies reflective of the social, political and economic segregation founded on race that was characteristic of apartheid South Africa. Apartheid in South Africa was dismantled after the international community began to BOYCOTT, DIVEST, AND SANCTION the country. Taking from this legacy, it is time for a new movement for a new generation of socially conscious people - it is time to BOYCOTT, DIVEST, AND SANCTION the APARTHEID STATE OF ISRAEL.

This is a call to action for our generation! It was students and people of conscience that took the first steps to ending the Apartheid in South Africa and once again it will be the students and people of conscience who bring an end to Apartheid. Be a part of the solution and help us to take the steps to Boycotting, Divesting and Sanctioning a country that is responsible for more human rights violations than any other. This is a chance for everyone to get involved and help bring an end to the conflict!

Please come out and join the Muslim Student Union, our co-sponsors, speakers, allies, and other people of conscience.
