Description:

Israel's human rights abuses against the Palestinians and violations of international law have made the Palestinians the moral cause of a generation, similar to the previous generations struggle against South African Apartheid. Yet many people continue to ask, ‘what can we do?’*BR**BR*Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions helps to answer this question by bringing together international activists in the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) campaign. The goal of the campaign is to pressure Israel until it complies with International Law, following the model that was successfully utilised against Apartheid.*BR**BR*With essays written by a wide selection of contributors, Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions mirrors the movement’s model of inclusivity and collaboration. Contributors include Ronnie Kasrils, Professor Richard Falk, Ilan Pappe, Omar Barghouti, Archbishop Attallah Hannah and Karma Nabulsi, alongside internationally acclaimed artists, writers, academics and grassroots activists.
