The annual Week Against the Apartheid Wall from 9-16 November is starting! 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!
The beginning of the Week Against the Apartheid Wall on 9 November coincides with the fall of the Berlin Wall on the same day 21 years ago. Yet, today Israel creates with the ongoing construction of the Apartheid Wall and the Bantustanization of in the West Bank an over 800 km long symbol of oppression and racism that must be stopped. We therefore invite the world to show solidarity with the Palestinians in the struggle to end apartheid, colonisation and the occupation!
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.

Stop the Wall Campaign, in cooperation with Ciranda, ANMCLA, Altermondo, E-Joussour and Caros Amigos, 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.
