Updates from the palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC): Posted by Haidar Eid at Middle East Eye


Palestinian efforts to encourage a boycott of Israel, modeled on the South African anti-apartheid global campaign, is gaining momentum as a democratic movement

On 9 August, hundreds of thousands of people worldwide took to the streets in response to a call from Palestinian civil society in the occupied and besieged Gaza Strip, and the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions, National Committee (BNC), for a Day of Rage.

This mobilization comes as grassroots pressure mounts on complicit Western governments to impose a military embargo on Israel.
