Occupied Palestine, 15 September -- the undersigned Palestinian civil society organizations call on the Egyptian authorities to immediately and unconditionally release human rights activist and co-founder of BDS Egypt, Ramy Shaath. Shaath has been detained in an Egyptian prison since July 5th under miserable conditions for his political views and nonviolent activism.

Support is growing for the Palestinian civil society call for a boycott to pressure Israel to respect Palestinian human rights.

OPINION ON RELATIONS BETWEEN UCT AND ISRAELI UNIVERSITIES 1. The Senate and Council of the University of Cape Town will soon consider the following proposal:

The Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI), a founding member of the largest coalition in Palestinian society that leads the global Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, calls for the boycott of InDnegev 2019 festival and urges all artists to withdraw, just as they would have refused to play a festival in apartheid South Africa.

The Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI), a founding member of the largest coalition in Palestinian society that leads the global Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, calls for the boycott of DGTL Tel Aviv 2019 festival.

We’re joining the Global Climate Strike (20-27 September), demanding an end to fossil fuel use, climate justice for all, and government action at the UN Climate Summit.  The increasingly catastrophic climate crisis, fueled by global inequality, has been engineered by complicit corporations and governments that put profit before people and planet. The least powerful are the most affected by the climate crisis. With no control over their land or natural resources, indigenous Palestinians under Israel’s repressive regime endure climate apartheid.

PRESS RELEASE, 16 September 2019 On Friday 13 September 2019, the Administrative Court of Cologne (Verwaltungsgericht Köln) instructed the City of Bonn to admit the German-Palestinian Women’s Association to the annual Bonn Culture and Encounter Festival (“Vielfalt!–Bonner Kultur -und Begegnungsfest”). The City had excluded the association because of its support for the BDS Movement for Palestinian rights. According to the Court, the City of Bonn has “not even remotely” demonstrated that any justification for this exclusion exists.

The Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC) calls for boycotting AnyVision, Israel’s facial recognition technology firm, due to its irrefutable complicity in Israel’s occupation and repression of Palestinians.  AnyVision profits from Israel’s violations of Palestinian human rights and exports its repressive surveillance technology globally.

The Palestinian-led BDS movement condemns the far-right Israeli government’s McCarthyite decision to prevent Congresswomen Tlaib and Omar from visiting the Occupied Palestinian Territory over their support for Palestinian freedom. We call for cutting US military aid to Israel.   Israel’s far-right government, with Trump’s collusion, has again put itself on par with apartheid South Africa in the past, and other rogue regimes in the present.
