The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement has become a key strategy for advocating and campaigning for Palestinian rights. The BDS movement pressures Israel to comply with international law and challenges the support Israel receives from governments, corporations and institutions across the world.
As our round-up of the year shows, 2016 has seen BDS grow further into the mainstream, spreading to new regions and achieving an even more significant impact.
As in the struggle against apartheid South Africa, BDS gives Palestinians hope that Israel’s regime of occupation, settler-colonialism and apartheid, too, can be defeated.
Please help the Palestinian BDS National Committee, the broadest coalition in Palestinian civil society that leads the global BDS movement, to make sure that we are able to continue building our movement and to keep our hope for freedom, justice and equality alive.
