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.
The 2018 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry says BDS is a platform to persuade people of conscience that Israel’s 71-year regime of dispossession and subjugation is an issue of great moral impact and needs our attention.
A Nobel Prize has been awarded to George P. Smith, a renowned scientist and longtime advocate for Palestinian rights who supports the BDS movement and has called for an end to US military aid to Israel. The BDS movement congratulates Professor Smith.
