Update

The prestigious Catholic University of Leuven in Belgium has announced its withdrawal from a controversial EU-funded research cooperation project with the Israeli police and the Israeli Ministry of Public Security.

Palestinian BDS leadership welcomes Colombian movements joining BDS and calls for deepening solidarity between the two peoples and redoubling our efforts to enact a military embargo on Israel now.

Update

Hundreds of elected officials in the Spanish State endorse BDS for Palestinian rights, setting a new BDS precedent in Europe. They include mayors, city councillors, members of congress, presidents of regional parliaments and members of the European Parliament.
