Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) is a Palestinian-led movement for freedom, justice and equality. BDS upholds the simple principle that Palestinians are entitled to the same rights as the rest of humanity.
Popular struggle and international solidarity have defended the Palestinian community of Khan al-Ahmar from expulsion, stopping bulldozers manufactured by international corporations from demolishing homes and a school. Effective BDS campaigning is critical as Israel's Supreme Court has approved the demolition of Khan al-Ahmar to make way for illegal settlements on occupied Palestinian land. This includes naming and shaming corporations manufacturing bulldozers complicit in Israel’s demolitions: JCB (UK), Caterpillar (US), Volvo (Sweden), Hyundai (South Korea), Hitachi (Japan) and LiuGong (China).
