Palestinians congratulate the Bolivian people on their victory
The peoples of Bolivia and Palestine are united in the struggle for freedom and justice, and also against colonialism.
Ramallah, 17 November 2020
To the Bolivian people,
From Palestine, the Palestinian BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) National Committee, which is the broadest coalition in Palestinian civil society leading the global BDS movement for Palestinian rights, congratulates you for your victory against the coup forces that illegally and violently usurped power.
The struggle of the Bolivian people and the assertion of your will are lessons in democracy, self-determination and dignity for the whole world.
We recognize and regret the human costs of this emancipatory process that you are leading. The Palestinian people know the immeasurable pain of every death and injury in the struggles of the oppressed around the world to achieve justice and rights.
The peoples of Bolivia and Palestine are united, not only in the struggle for freedom and justice, but also as peoples of the Global South hit by colonialism.
We look forward to working with progressive forces in Bolivia in the pursuit of stronger ties and partnerships, ending complicity with Israel’s regime of apartheid and settler-colonialism, and building a better future for all of us.
BDS National Committee
