Updates from the palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC)
Palestinians welcome Prof. Cheney-Lippold's stand for Palestinian rights and urge academics to end all collaboration with complicit Israeli institutions, including through study abroad programs in Israel.
Palestinian environmental networks and professional unions call on MedPine to relocate its conference outside of Israel and urge invited speakers to refuse to lend their scholarship to KKL-JNF’s greenwashing of Israel’s violations of Palestinian human rights.
Palestinian football clubs and sports associations urge Puma to end its sponsorship of the Israel Football Association due to inclusion of teams based in illegal Israeli settlements on stolen Palestinian land.
Palestinian workers', women's and farmers' associations urge international chefs to cancel their participation in Round Tables 2018 in Tel Aviv. "It is an attempt to whitewash Israel’s grave violations of Palestinian human rights."
As the Oslo Accords turn 25, we see that the “peace process” has served as cover for Israel to steal more Palestinian land, expel more Palestinians from their homes and commit war crimes against Palestinians without accountability. It's more important than ever to redouble our efforts to isolate Israeli apartheid and create a future where we are all free.
Company says that BDS is protected by freedom of expression and asserts that people have the right to criticize Israeli policies
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).
