Boycotting Israeli Apartheid: The Struggle Continues
October 6-8, 2006 - Toronto

Featuring:
Jamal Jum'a - Coordinator, Stop the Wall Campaign (Palestine)
Willie Madisha - Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU)
Salim Vally - Palestine Solidarity Committee(South Africa)

The Coalition Against Israeli Apartheid (CAIA) invites you to join us from October 6-8, 2006 for "Boycotting Israeli Apartheid: The Struggle
Continues" a broad-based conference dedicated to promoting the growing anti-apartheid movement in Palestine and abroad through a comprehensive
boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) campaign targeting Israeli apartheid.

The conference will include participants from Palestine, South Africa and Turtle Island; bringing together all those working on BDS as a means of dismantling Zionist racism and opening up new spaces for creative action.

The conference aims to develop understandings, strategies and networks that can give impetus to a national BDS campaign.

The weekend will also serve as a showcase of the Palestinian arts, featuring cultural programming and a marketplace of alternative 'Apartheid
Free' products from Palestine. Furthermore, BDS campaigners from across Canada, representing different community, faith, labour, and student
organizations will be on hand to share in this important strategizing, networking and learning experience.
