Israel: Boycott, Divest, Sanction / Naomi Klein
20-Jan-2009 (one comment)

It's time. Long past time. The best strategy to end the increasingly bloody occupation is for Israel to become the target of the kind of global movement that put an end to apartheid in South Africa. In July 2005 a huge coalition of Palestinian groups laid out plans to do just that. They called on "people of conscience all over the world to impose broad boycotts and implement divestment initiatives against Israel similar to those applied to South Africa in the apartheid era." The campaign Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions—BDS for short—was born.

The Palestinian group for the boycott is a very good place to start. Thanks for posting. We need to bring up this subject consistenly and raise awareness.
