The BDS Movement Affirms its Full Support for Administrative Detainees' Boycott of Israeli Courts
In response to calls from the leadership of Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli prisons, the Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC) calls for boycotting apartheid Israel’s complicit court system on all cases related to the policy of administrative detention until this policy is repealed completely.
Israel has recently escalated its brutal repression against our brave political prisoners, including violent assaults against them and deprivation of their basic, internationally recognized rights. Today, 520 administrative prisoners stand united against Israel’s illegal policy of administrative detention which deprives detainees of their freedom without due process, including even presenting charges against them.
The BNC, the largest coalition in Palestinian society that leads the global BDS movement, affirms its full support of our administrative detainees’ boycott of Israeli courts. We are committed to strengthening our global BDS campaigns against apartheid Israel and companies, banks and cultural institutions that are complicit in its crimes against our prisoners and the entire Palestinian people.
We call for intensifying BDS efforts globally to pressure Israel’s regime of apartheid, settler-colonialism and occupation to revoke its policy of administrative detention and to free all Palestinian political prisoners.
No matter how challenging our path ahead may be, we shall continue the struggle for our inalienable rights to freedom, the right to return and self-determination.
