WHY BOYCOTT ISRAEL?

The Palestinian people are experiencing their 42nd year of military
occupation. The siege by the Israeli army and the economic blockade
have devastated their daily lives so that ‘normal’ life is impossible.

Israel operates an entrenched system of racial Apartheid against its
own non-Jewish inhabitants and has been illegally occupying
Palestinian land in the West Bank, Gaza Strip, East Jerusalem and the
Golan Heights since 1967. It has sought to further annex these lands
and has systematically transferred its own civilian population into
these occupied territories in contravention of international law.
Israel continues to build the illegal Apartheid wall, annexing vast
swathes of Palestinian land in the West Bank and creating Palestinian
ghettos, despite the ruling of the International Court of Justice that
it is illegal.

180 Palestinian organisations and unions, in response to Israeli
onslaught, have called for a campaign of Boycott, Divestment and
Sanctions against Apartheid Israel.
