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.
A majority of SSSP members stand in solidarity with Palestinian academics and support the call from Palestinian civil society for effective measures to hold Israel accountable for its denial of the fundamental human rights of millions of Palestinians.
The Emilia Romagna Regional Council and the Turin City Council respond to the call from more than 70 Palestinian civil society organizations for effective countermeasures to stop Israel’s illegal annexation of the occupied West Bank and its grave human rights violations.
Prominent signatories to Global South call include former South African President Kgalema Motlanthe, former Mozambiquean Minister Oscar Monteiro, former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay, General Secretary of the South African Federation of Trade Unions Zwelinzima Vavi, and former Commissioner at SA Human Rights Commission Pregs Govender.
