Palestinian Civil Society Calls for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel Until it Complies with International Law and Universal Principles of Human Rights July 9, 2005

  • In light of Israel’s persistent violations of international law; and Given that, since 1948, hundreds of UN resolutions have condemned Israel’s colonial and discriminatory policies as illegal and called for immediate, adequate and effective remedies; and
  • Given that all forms of international intervention and peace-making have until now failed to convince or force Israel to comply with humanitarian law, to respect fundamental human rights and to end its occupation and oppression of the people of Palestine; and
  • In view of the fact that people of conscience in the international community have historically shouldered the moral responsibility to fight injustice, as exemplified in the struggle to abolish apartheid in South Africa through diverse forms of boycott, divestment and sanctions; and
  • Inspired by the struggle of South Africans against apartheid and in the spirit of international solidarity, moral consistency and resistance to injustice and oppression;
  • We, representatives of Palestinian civil society, call upon international civil society organizations and people of conscience all over the world to impose broad boycotts and implement divestment initiatives against Israel similar to those applied to South Africa in the apartheid era. We appeal to you to pressure your respective states to impose embargoes and sanctions against Israel. We also invite conscientious Israelis to support this Call, for the sake of justice and genuine peace.
  • These non-violent punitive measures should be maintained until Israel meets its obligation to recognize the Palestinian people’s inalienable right to self-determination and fully complies with the precepts of international law by:
  • 1. Ending its occupation and colonization of all Arab lands and dismantling the Wall
  • 2. Recognizing the fundamental rights of the Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel to full equality; and
  • 3. Respecting, protecting and promoting the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and properties as stipulated in UN resolution 194.

Is coffee beans and tea leaf on the boycott list?

I couldn’t find any sources and I found out the founder of Jollibee, a very well knows Filipino restaurant purchased it since 2019, so there is a high chance it doesn’t support the terrorist entity am I right?

Swedish Handelsbanken roots for H&M. I much rather would like a bankruptcy.

I took a look at (a glance) at the stock price development and from what I see this is bs recommendations to buy H&M short and long term. Shorting the bitch might pay off better, and get you profit. Disclaimer: obviously I'm nobody, just an 🦧 and I don't know what I'm talking about so no financial advice, just a dream of a better world.

Free drinks at work?

I recently got a job at Buffalo Wild Wings, and at least at my location they have Pepsi products while on the job I get free drinks is it still acceptable to drink them? They’re free but the company already payed for the syrup so I’d ask here. I’ve been drinking just water but there are some days where I feel like I need the caffeine

Holy shit.. Google what?!?! ... ... I haven't seen Google return this kind of language... Ever. With a neutral search phrase. I'm shocked, maybe the truth can win. Or maybe Google tweaks a couple things and this is a fluke, but I hope it's a crack in the armor..

Is it okay to buy from brands that sell their products in Israel?

I want to buy shoes from Crocs, but I noticed they sell their products in Israel. Should I be boycotting brands that sell their products in Israel?
