BDS: What we need to know

I took part in this Zoom panel for the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign with Omar Barghouti and Andrew Preston. Facebook embed doesn’t work, so click through to it here.

For the seasoned campaigner, those already aware and active, and those fresh to the issue, this webinar is an opportunity to take a moment to understand where the ‘BDS Call’ comes from, how the international solidarity movement has progressed so far and the changed terrain in which we campaign in solidarity with the Palestinian people.What does BDS mean in practice? What are we trying to achieve? Who are our allies and what do we understand about our opposition? Is the Israel lobby as powerful as some believe? What do the events of the last month mean for the Palestinian struggle and for international solidarity?
