Organizers of the second annual Boston Israel Apartheid Week claim to have significantly expanded their college presence from last year, but local students are preparing to counter protests against the Jewish state.

Apartheid Week occurred last year at UMass.-Boston and Boston College, but this year has expanded to Boston University, Northeastern, Tufts, Wellesley and possibly Brandeis with events running from March 1 to 14.
