It’s Israeli Apartheid Week in Winnipeg, Canada and many other cities and towns around the world. In Winnipeg, Israeli Apartheid Week 2011 is taking place on the campuses of the University of Manitoba and the University of Winnipeg.
This clip features a presentation by Howard S. Davidson, Associate Professor of Extended Education at the University of Manitoba and member of Independent Jewish Voices (Canada). He spoke at a workshop entitled “Israeli Apartheid 101″ at the University of Winnipeg on March 14, 2011.
Professor Davidson demolishes the arguments of pro-Israel apologists who equate support for Palestinian rights with anti-Semitism. Further, he demonstrates that the term “Israeli apartheid” is a legitimate part of the political discourse in Israel, even while those who use it in Canada and the United States are vilified by Israel’s North American supporters.
In Winnipeg, IAW 2011 is sponsored by:
- Students Against Israeli Apartheid (U of W, U of M)
- Canada Palestine Support Network (Winnipeg)
- Independent Jewish Voices (Winnipeg)
- Peace Alliance Winnipeg
