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.
European professors and academic institutions urged to end cooperation with the EU-funded project over involvement of Israeli institutions known for illegal detention practices, routine torture, and violence against Palestinians.
The court ruled that it is unlawful for the government to restrict local councils from exercising their conscience and divesting their pensions from Israeli companies complicit in violating Palestinian human rights.
Open letter from 46 artists, including Thurston Moore, Roger Waters and Peter Kosminsky, as well as Archbishop Desmond Tutu says, 'Respect Palestinian call for a boycott of Israel, don’t play Tel Aviv on July 19.'
