As you know, I am a white settler on Lenapehoking. Also, I deplore that the profit of my labor goes to the aparthied state of Isreal’s illegal occupation of Palestine. I support the cultural boycott of Isreal, and support movements to divest from Israel and to impose sanctions against Israel.
I am humbled and thrilled to announce that a group of excellent people put together this event in a very short period of time. Join us on November 19th, 2021, 7:00pm, at the Rotunda in West Philly for a night of films and a panel discussion about pinkwashing.
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.
Israel is occupying and colonising Palestinian land, discriminating against Palestinian citizens of Israel and denying Palestinian refugees the right to return to their homes. Inspired by the South African anti-apartheid movement, the BDS call urges action to pressure Israel to comply with international law.
BDS is now a vibrant global movement made up of unions, academic associations, churches and grassroots movements across the world. Since its launch in 2005, BDS is having a major impact and is effectively challenging international support for Israeli apartheid and settler-colonialism.
