The Palestine solidarity and human rights organization BDS South Africa welcomes the launch of of the “Internationalist Calendar” by the Johannesburg Region of the South African Students Congress (SASCO).
The calendar, features images of South Africa’s Oliver Tambo, Palestine’s Leila Khaled, Cuba’s Fidel Castro and former President Nelson Mandela. It also carries messages in support of the people of Cuba, Western Sahara, Swaziland and Palestine.
We are warning members of SASCO that would want to be party to this Israel project, should they defy and cross the picket line, they will get expelled from the organization. SASCO in the region will be participating in the 13th annual International Israeli Apartheid Week, between the 6th -12th March 2017. The campaign seeks to raise awareness about Israel’s apartheid policies and serves to garner support for the growing non-violent BDS campaign.” (Click here for the full statement released by SASCO Johannesburg on the launch of their Internatioanlist Calendar)
