Join the Anti-Apartheid Media Marathon to help put a stop to illegal practices of the Occupation

To mark this year’s Week against the Apartheid Wall from 9 – 16 November, Palestinian and international activists will again mobilize in the streets and organize a series of events across the globe. This mobilization on the ground will be complemented by a fast paced 48 hour media marathon on 12 and 13 November. We call on media to join 48 hours non-stop coverage!

On the days of the Week against the Apartheid Wall there will be a calendar of international events, where participants will come together to demand an end to the Apartheid Wall and to Israeli impunity, through film screenings, demonstrations, photo exhibits, conferences and debates. In Asia, North and South America and Europe people will come together to target the apartheid policies and practices of the Occupation, and the Governments and international businesses which are complicit in the construction of the illegal Wall and the settlements. The Boycott, Divestments and Sanctions campaign is crucial in telling the world that Israel and the companies and Governments which support it should no longer be allowed to profit from the continuing attack on the basic rights of Palestinians.

Israel and the international community have failed to meet their obligations to end the construction of the Wall and its associated regime six years on from the ICJ Advisory Opinion which found these practices to be illegal. As another round of peace talks will not bring any justice to the Palestinian people, it is more important now than ever to mobilize communities around the world to bring an end to the injustices of the Occupation.

Stop the Wall Campaign, in cooperation with Ciranda, Foro Social de Radios, WSFTV, shared communication initiatives and alternative media bellow, has launched this media marathon to engage international media activists in raising
awareness of the Wall and its effects. We call on media to join 48 hours non-stop coverage by broadcasting, airing, streaming or publishing information about the Wall, Israeli Apartheid and Palestinian resistance and global BDS movement.

Participating is easy:

1) Choose a time span during the 48 hours of the media marathon (12th of November 0:00h – 13th of November 23:59h), during which you will offer coverage about the Wall, Israeli Apartheid and Palestinian resistance and global solidarity.

2) Let Stop the Wall know that you are participating in the Media Marathon so that we can get you in contact with other participating media and can insert you in the 48 hours programming to be published a special website. Contact: gemma@stopthewall.org

3) Create your programming. Draw upon the resources in your community. There is much information and media material already out there. Contact Stop the Wall at: gemma@stopthewall.org if you need support, information or material.

4) Send your media, blogs or web article to: gemma@stopthewall.org or bds@ciranda.net

This media marathon is the first of its kind. Stop the Wall Campaign calls on journalists and media stations across the world to take the opportunity to cover these major events over 12 and 13 November as they follow the route of the sun. The time is now to show that there can be no peace without an end to repression and occupation.
