BDS@10: Ten years of effective solidarity with the Palestinian struggle
One year ago, Israel launched a brutal military attack on the Palestinian population of the occupied and besieged Gaza Strip. More than 2,200 Palestinians were killed, including 551 children. More than 10,000 people were seriously injured and hundreds of thousands were made homeless, forcibly displaced and trapped inside Gaza. Israel has still not been held accountable.
Palestinian oppression and dispossession continues to intensify under Israel’s brutal regime of apartheid and settler colonialism.
But ten years after its launch on July 9 2005, BDS [ boycotts, divestment and sanctions] is a key and growing source of inspiration for the Palestinian people. Our grassroots movement is more widely supported than ever and it is having a real impact.
The Palestinian BDS National Committee has published a number of items marking the 10th anniversary of the BDS call:
1. A new interactive resource showcasing some of the key achievements of the movement so far.
2. A report from a press conference we held this morning in Ramallah for international and local journalists.
3. A statement titled One year since Israel’s Gaza massacre and ten years since the launch of the BDS movement: building the boycott is more important than ever.
Please join us in marking BDS@10 by viewing and sharing these new publications.
The Palestinian BDS National Committee deeply appreciates the tireless efforts of BDS activists and BDS supporting organisations around the world. You inspire us and give us hope.
Ten years after the launch of BDS, isolating Israel’s regime has become more crucial than ever and more realistic than ever. We shall overcome.
