Apartheid In A Pipe: Get Your Ethnic Privilege Discount Now

Abby Zimet

This week - from March 22, World Water Day, to March 30, Palestinian Land Day - marks the first International Week Against Mekorot, an international campaign to boycott Israel's national water company and hold it accountable for its discriminatory water practices in the Occupied Territories and particularly Gaza. Stop Mekorot is a joint effort by PENGON/Friends of the Earth Palestine, the Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC), the Land Defense Coalition and other Palestinian Environmental NGOs. Following recent victories in Argentina and the Netherlands, the campaign has launched a devastating video celebrating "liquid apartheid." Come to Israel, it urges, where Mekorot "makes sure you have all the water you want - if you're of the correct ethnic-religious category."

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
