Peace not Apartheid

Sophomore, Islamic Civilizations and Societies Major

This photograph was taken during the annual Boston College “Peace Not Apartheid Week”. Thanks to the representation of the Separation Wall on Stokes Lawn, the barrier that separates Israel and the West Bank, as well as multiple movie screenings and talks throughout the week, the campus group Students for Justice in Palestine hopes to raise awareness about the ongoing systematic oppression and denial of basic human rights against the indigenous Palestinian population living in Israel/Palestine. These Palestinians have always been socially and physically exiled from their own homeland as well as the global community, and will continue to be so unless constructive measures towards peace are taken.
