Canadian BDS Coalition: Five Years and Counting
BDS is a strategy that allows people of conscience around the world to play an effective role in the Palestinian struggle for justice. In July 2005, Palestinian civil society issued a call for a campaign of boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel until it complies with international law and Palestinian rights.
The Canadian BDS Coalition is comprised of groups in Canada that support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement targeting Israel’s system of settler-colonialism, occupation, and apartheid towards the Palestinian people. These are groups that support the BDS call and have endorsed the Coalition’s Basis of Unity.
The Canadian BDS Coalition currently has member groups from across the country, as well as a number of national organizations.
70+ organizations from across Canada and around the world, and 130+ individuals including former federal members of parliament Libby Davies & Jim Manly, former UN rapporteur John Dugard, Chris Hedges fromer NY Times bureau chief, academics, faith community leaders, labour leaders & many others have now signed.
