Israel-based international defense electronics company

Elbit Systems Ltd. is an Israel-based international defense electronics company


Israel uses military force and sophisticated technology to maintain its oppression of Palestinians.

Human rights organisations have documented that Israel violates international law and carries out war crimes during its frequent attacks on Palestinians.

Israel is only able to act with such impunity because governments and companies around the world cooperate with its military and with its military companies.

Palestinian civil society has called for a comprehensive and immediate military embargo on Israel. BDS campaigning is starting to have an impact on Israeli military companies such as Elbit Systems.

Vassar Israeli Apartheid Week

The coming year (2018) will mark 70 years of Palestinian popular resistance against the ongoing process of dispossession and ethnic cleansing, since the 1948 Nakba.The Palestinian people’s resistance against colonization has in fact been longer than that. From the Balfour Declaration of 1917 to the present moment- Palestinians have fought for their dignity, their rights, and their lands. Israeli Apartheid Week is an opportunity to reflect on this resistance and further advance BDS campaigns for the continued growth and impact of the movement. Despite Israel’s legal and propaganda war on BDS internationally, Israeli Apartheid Week and the BDS movement continue to build linkages and solidarity with other struggles to achieve freedom, justice, and equality.

Vassar Students for Justice in Palestine and Jewish Voice for Peace, in collaboration with Vassar Prison Initiative, MBSA, WVKR, MENASA (formerly known as MESC) and other campus chapter partners bring you an incredible lineup of events that will bring Palestine solidarity back to Vassar! Israeli Apartheid Week is an international event that takes place in the months of February, March, and April, with campuses, cities, and institutions having engaged their communities for 14 years in support of Palestinian resistance. Through a series of workshops, lectures, performances, and moderated dialogue spaces, we hope to provide multiple entry points to see Palestinian liberation as an integral component to anti-colonial and anti-racist spaces, as well as critical to fighting the pervasive transphobia, homophobia, anti-semitism and islamophobia that is on the rise in our current political climate.
