Israeli Apartheid Week 2012: Books to read, films to watch, people to hear

Israeli Apartheid Week 2012: Reading List & Films

This week is Israeli Apartheid Week 2012. At New York University Students for Justice in Palestine aka. SJP@NYU several events are being held to raise awareness about Israeli Apartheid. Earlier today, a group of over 30 students and activists chanted solidarity slogans in support of freedom in Palestine and to celebrate a successful year-long divestment campaign from TIAA-CREF’s Investments in Companies that Profit from the Occupation of Palestinian Territories.

For this year’s IAW, I have compiled a suggested reading list and several films to help understand what the chants and signatures are calling for:
