Make Apartheid History - The Project

Make Apartheid History (once and for all) is an international project that will bring together creative individuals, organisations and networks from around the world – starting with Palestine and the UK; South Africa and USA . It is connecting up civil rights, anti-apartheid and Palestinian solidarity movements, for a programme of popular events commencing summer 2015 and culminating summer 2016.

2015 has significance in the 4 key partner countries where we want MAH to have special impact: it marks 10 years since the BDS call, 25 years since Mandela’s release, 60 years since Rosa Parks sat down, 800 years since Magna Carta.

Lead Partners

OPGAI (Occupied Palestine and Syrian Golan Heights Advocacy), PSCC (Popular Struggle Co-ordination Committee), Bedouins Without Borders. Tipping Point North South, Pressure Cooker Arts, ICAHDUK (Israeli Committee against House Demolitions UK). In partnership with Artists for Palestine UK, Palestine Legal Action Network. 

Launch

MAH launched on Saturday 18 July – International Mandela Day – and was a part of the Madiba Festival at the South Bank.

The MAH website went live on the same day

Background



Make Apartheid History (MAH) is the follow up to Bethlehem Unwrapped- a full-scale replica of Israel’s apartheid Wall in central London, revealed on Christmas Eve 2013 in front of one of the UK’s most famous churches. Thirty thousand people visited The Wall installation; The Wall and the accompanying Bethlehem Unwrapped festival received global media coverage, reaching a worldwide audience of millions via social media.

Why your donation makes a difference

Ethical practice is central to our way of working. This includes how we raise and source funds for the Make Apartheid History project.

Help make apartheid history once and for all.

Although South Africa is most associated with apartheid and is the context from which the term originates, the crime of apartheid has a far broader definition. ‘Apartheid’ isn’t a term of insult; it is a word with a specific legal meaning. While the regime that inspired the drafting of the Apartheid Convention came to an end in South Africa in 1990, apartheid continues to exist under international law as a crime against humanity that applies to other situations.

The term ‘the crime of apartheid, which shall include similar policies and practices of racial segregation and discrimination as practiced in southern Africa, shall apply to … inhuman acts committed for the purpose of establishing and maintaining domination by one racial group of persons over any other racial group of persons and systematically oppressing them.
Article II, International Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid,
UN General Assembly Resolution 3068, 30 November 1973



We are forging a unique project between Palestine and the UK, along with partners in the South Africa and the USA. MAH can only take off as a concept and as a series of international events if we have the support of those who believe in what we are doing.
