Week Against the Apartheid Wall: Global Action Update

With still 3 days to go, we are now witnessing a widespread mobilisation across the globe for the Week Against the Apartheid Wall. Diverse and creative actions demanding an end to apartheid and occupation in Palestine can be seen in Argentina, Brazil, England, Ireland, the Netherlands, South Africa and Australia to name but a few. Part of the success of such wide scale mobilisation can be attributed to the impressive co-ordination of activist and media groups around the world who are continuously updating us on their activities, which can be found on the media marathon website MediaMarathon.StopTheWall.net. As well as providing a calendar of events happening for the Week, this site also demonstrates the commitment of a range of media organisations – increasing by the day – who are covering protests, writing articles about the Wall and BDS, and broadcasting radio shows with interviews from Jamal Juma’ from Stop the Wall among others.
