Updates from the palestinian BDS (Brazil)
While Brazil's new president wants to follow in the footsteps of Donald Trump moving the Brazilian embassy to Jerusalem, and Rio de Janeiro's new governor wants to buy Israeli weaponized drones, Palestinian and Rio de Janeiro’s favelas’ social movements call for a joint and global struggle against racism and militarization
Artists and directors from Brazil, France and Pakistan announce their withdrawal from this year's Tel Aviv International LGBT Film Festival following calls from Palestinian LGBT collective "Pinkwatching Israel" and human rights activists around the world.
Palestinians warmly welcome news that Gilberto Gil, a legendary Brazilian musician and cultural hero, has cancelled his July 4 performance in Tel Aviv. His cancellation appears to be in response to Israel’s slaughter of over 100 civilians in Gaza over the past few weeks.
Palestinians denounce the assassination of Rio de Janeiro’s councillor and human rights activist Marielle Franco and extend solidarity to Brazilians: "Together we commit to continue striving for the world Marielle dreamed about, a world of freedom, justice and equality for all".
The call for BDS measures in Brazil is particularly significant because the country is one of the largest buyers of Israeli weapons and military technologies in the world.
