Mandla Mandela calls on international civil society to ask their governments to support the boycott of Israel in the same way they did with South Africa

Today, on Land Day and the 2nd anniversary of Gaza’s Great March of Return, we mark decades of resistance to Israel’s colonization and apartheid. As we struggle against Israel’s repression, plus COVID-19, the need for meaningful solidarity in the form of #BDS is even more urgent. Israel’s far-right government is escalating its oppression of the Indigenous Palestinians, especially in the Gaza ghetto, even as the coronavirus poses a grave new threat. 

Joint statement from the BDS Movement and Jewish Voice for Peace:  Microsoft’s decision to heed the calls of the campaign to drop the Israeli surveillance company AnyVision is a huge and timely #BDS victory.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE March 28, 2020 Contact: Sonya E Meyerson-Knox | [email protected] | 929-290-0317   “In late January we went to Microsoft’s headquarters with over 75,000 petitions asking them to stop funding AnyVision. Yesterday they did”

Our thoughts are with people everywhere fighting the coronavirus. Israel’s apartheid regime has used the pandemic as a smokescreen to intensify its oppression of Palestinians, with even more impunity than ever.

The 16th annual Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) is taking place this week under the theme, United against Racism. IAW 2020 advocates for Palestinian rights and growing the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement to achieve those rights, in the context of global struggles against racial oppression. Due to the coronavirus and restrictions on physical gatherings it has caused, many IAW panels, protests and cultural events have been postponed, or canceled. So we’re taking IAW’s message on line, to reach people in their homes.
