The Great Hall was filled to capacity, as the crowd gathered in support of the Israeli Apartheid Week tonight. They were united in song and dance lead by the performances of Simphiwe Dana and Thandiswa Mazwai. The artists pledged a heartfelt solidarity to the cause and cited personal and patriotic experiences that inspired their responsiveness to IAW. The crowd was electric and chanted “We love Palestine!” and all pledged to be the voice of the voiceless.
Wits Vuvuzela spoke to Simphiwe Dana. She expressed her thoughts on the situation in Palestine. As a gender activist who advocates for women and children she also spoke about the suffering experienced by women and children in the region.
