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.
Jerusalem Press Conference:
Time: Monday, 16 November 2009, 10:00 am
Place: Mount Scopus Hotel in Jerusalem
The Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions National Committee (BNC)* invites you to a press conference calling for on all Arab governments to exclude the French companies, Veolia and Alstom, from all public contracts, due to their complicity in the construction and management of the Jerusalem Light Rail (JLR), an Israeli project that gravely violates international law and Palestinian rights.
The Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) is deeply disturbed by the decision of the International Geographical Union (IGU) to hold its regional conference in Israel next July. We urge the IGU to relocate this conference to another venue in the region, and appeal to all geographers to refrain from participating in the conference if it is convened in Israel.
