A Non-Violent Tactic to End the Occupation of Palestine … and the Backlash

Additional guest(s) to be announced

In 2005, Palestinian civil society issued a call for a campaign of boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel until it complies with international law and Palestinian rights. A truly global movement against Israeli Apartheid is rapidly emerging in response to this call.

The campaign for boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDS) is shaped by a rights-based approach and highlights the three broad sections of the Palestinian people: the refugees, those under military occupation in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, and Palestinians in Israel.

As the BDS campaign has increased in international participation, a backlash from opponents has begun, taking various forms, from new restrictions on free speech on college campuses to proposed legislation barring the state of California from doing business with any company that participates in the boycott.

At this month’s Other Voices forum, we’ll explore the history, breadth and effectiveness of the BDS movement and the resulting backlash.

YOU are an important part of every Other Voices forum. The forum really is a conversation and that includes you. So come prepared to ask questions or share your opinions.

Other Voices Monthly Forum is held at the Midpen Media Center, where it is recorded for later broadcast on local cable television and streaming on the Internet. Previous forums (and other videos) can be seen at our YouTube Channel or the Video Page at our website.
