A crime in South Africa.
A crime in Israel.
Major human rights organizations are saying that Israel is committing the crime of apartheid.
Apartheid has a legal definition which applies to any country that systematically and intentionally oppresses a racialized group.
The Israeli state’s apartheid practices impact nearly every aspect of Palestinian life for those living in the occupied Palestinian territory as well as for Palestinian citizens of Israel.
An Apartheid Free Zone (AFZ) is a space where we can build proactive solidarity with the Palestinian people. It can be a local business, a student association, labour union, or even an entire city.
