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.
Trump and Pompeo, encouraged by apartheid Israel, are smearing the nonviolent, anti-racist BDS movement, while deepening their alliances with the global far-right and despotic regimes worldwide that are deeply anti-Jewish, and anti-Palestinian.
Amnesty said the US smears are "particularly hypocritical and deceitful coming from an administration that has emboldened neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other groups who advocate violence and discrimination"
The Trump administration's anti-Palestinian and illegal act reverses decades of official U.S. policy regarding Jerusalem and contradicts the international consensus. Trump’s policies on Palestine underscore that it is long past time for the world to apply concrete pressure on Israel to respect Palestinian rights through support for our struggle for rights and dignity.
