The 5th International Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) will take place in Toronto from March 2nd to March 8th 2009, despite attempts by university administrations to ban posters for the event. IAW is aimed at raising awareness about Israel's apartheid policies towards Palestinians and to gather support for the international boycott, divestment and sanctions campaign. IAW will open on March 2nd with Omar Barghouti, founder of the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI), and will close on March 6th with Ronnie Kasrils, former member of the South African 'African National Congress' (ANC) and government minister in several post-apartheid South African governments.
