Dear friends, colleagues and supporters,
July 18th is International Mandela Day. It asks ‘what will you do to serve your fellow human beings?’.
One of the things you can do to answer this call, is to support Palestinian civil society’s call for boycott, divestment and sanctions on Israel until it complies with international law and to make apartheid history, once and for all. As South Africans, and over many years, Nelson Mandela and his dear friend Archbishop Desmond Tutu, made their support for the Palestinian struggle clear as they saw the parallels between apartheid South Africa and Israel/Palestine.
Make Apartheid History launched one year ago. We are marking this Mandela Day by sharing a short video loop of the highlights of our first year’s activity. We hope you enjoy this compilation of short films, events and performances.
Make Apartheid History is an international project that brings together creative individuals, organisations and networks from around the world – starting with Palestine and the UK; South Africa and USA – for a programme of popular events connecting civil rights, anti-apartheid and Palestinian solidarity movements which commenced summer 2015.
We thank the many artists and campaigners who have supported our activity to date – from Palestine and the UK, USA and South Africa.
If you’d like to find out more about why the term ‘apartheid’ can be applied to Israel’s policies, here is our ‘rationale.’
Together we can MAKE APARTHEID HISTORY once and for all.
Best wishes from everyone on the Make Apartheid History team.
Make Apartheid History is supported by Trust Greenbelt and Amiel & Melburn Trust.
