Try as politicians might (see post below), it seems that Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW for short) is growing. IAW is held in more places with each year. This is the first year the events denouncing the system of Israeli Apartheid against Palestinians is held on the University of Manitoba campus. The event runs March 8-12th.

Already pressure is being put on university officials to stop the events. Two news report links: 1 2

The People's Voice newspaper reports even more disturbing going ons in the halls of power. New laws being dreamed up, if enacted by the Harper Conservatives, may make events such as IAW criminal and outlaw criticism in Canada. [link here].
