The BDS movement
There’s plenty of excitement amongst pro-Palestinian activists about the growing BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) movement. But are activists engaged in the campaign weighing up the pros and cons of using particular tactics or are they hiding behind the “led by Palestinian civil society” banner? Should we be campaigning for a more nuanced form of BDS campaign which takes account of our own countries’ responsibility for upholding the occupation of Gaza and the West Bank? Here I discuss the issue with a fellow EAPPI observer in Hebron as part of a new podcast This is not BBC Hebron/Al-Khalil.
