Balfour Declaration – 100 Years of Settler Colonialism

In 2017, we marked the centenary of 1917 Balfour Declaration. It was to usher in 100 years of settler colonialism. The parallels between the apartheid nature of Israel and South Africa – both settler colonial projects in their origins – are clear. Palestinian campaigners have long condemned the Balfour Declaration as a pledge issued by a British government that gave away land it did not own. In 2017 the British Government rejected a Palestinian request for an apology over the 1917 Balfour Declaration. Instead, it celebrated the centenary.

On Mandela Day

Make Apartheid History launched on Mandela Day, one year ago. We’re marking this Mandela Day July 18th, by sharing a short video compilation of the highlights of our first year’s activity.

Make Apartheid History is an international project that brings together creative individuals, organisations and networks from around the world – starting with Palestine and the UK; South Africa and USA – for a programme of popular events connecting civil rights, anti-apartheid and Palestinian solidarity movements which commenced summer 2015. It supports Palestinian civil society calls for BDS

We thank all those artists and campaigners who have supported our activity to date – from Palestine and the UK, USA and South Africa.

Support BDS

To express our support for BDS – Boycott Divestment and Sanctions on Israel until it complies with international law – we gathered in London to spell out our call.
