Conference details, speakers & participants
A two day conference bringing international speakers and Scottish groups and organisations actively supporting the Palestinian call for a campaign of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) aims to build on boycott successes and growing civil society support for Palestine in Scotland and around the UK.
Divestment of public, workplace and church pension funds from companies, Israeli or otherwise, complicit in Israel’s daily violations of Palestinian rights is a vital part of our solidarity work. During the struggle against South African apartheid, Scottish churches, trade unions and campaigners were part of the world-wide divestment movement. It is now time to follow the example of others by divesting from Israeli occupation, colonisation and apartheid.
