“Boycott Divestment and Sanctions Movement in the Palestinian Territories under Israeli Military Administration”

Michael Merryman-Lotze from American Friends Service Committee will be explaining the  BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) Movement, a Palestinian-led initiative that works to end international support for Israel’s oppression of Palestinians and pressure Israel to comply with international law.   BDS targets international companies building settlements or otherwise profiting from services in the settlements—eg. Banks, pension funds, university investments, Caterpillar, Huylett-Packard, and  Motorola.

For a description of the Israeli military occupation, this link to Palestine 101 is helpful background.
