GVSU Student group to host speaker on Israel’s Apartheid State – January 23
Next Wednesday, January 23rd, the International Socialist Club at GVSU will host writer/activist Sherry Wolf, who will speak on how Israeli policies towards Palestine are a form of Apartheid.
For years critics of Israeli policies have made to connection between South African Apartheid and Israeli Apartheid, including South African Bishop Desmond Tutu. This criticism has included an organized BDS Campaign, known as a Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Campaign against Israel.
A BDS campaign was one of the most effective tactics used to defeat South African Apartheid and those involved in the BDS Campaign against Israel believe it will have similar results.
According to the Facebook event, Sherry Wolf, “will speak on why she opposes Israel’s occupation of Palestinian land and also offer a socialist perspective on the issue while also comparing and contrasting South African Apartheid to Israeli apartheid. She will briefly touch on the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions movement.”
This event is co-sponsored by Healing Children of Conflict, is free and open to the public.
