A Conversation on Apartheid

A Conversation on Apartheid
January 6, 2012 By Sophia Azeb

Keeping with our South Africa thread.

For our readers in Southern California, a very important conversation will be taking place at the University of Southern California on Thursday, 12 January. Omar Barghouti, one of the organizers of the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel, will join legendary U.S.-based scholar-activists Angela Davis and Fred Moten to discuss the correlations between the divestment campaign against South Africa’s apartheid regime and the ongoing Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel.

Given the long history of South African and Palestinian collaboration against apartheid and occupation (in part inspired by the history of both nations aiding each other’s oppressive regimes), I am looking forward to reporting back on this event for AIAC. But for those able to attend, I look forward to ringing in the new year with an anti-apartheid allied strategy session.
