12/2/2010 -- The Industrial Workers of the World (IWW or Wobblies) has officially voted to support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement in support of Palestinian rights. The "Resolution in Support of the Workers of Palestine/Israel" was adopted in an overwhelming vote both at the IWW's convention in Minneapolis and by the membership via referendum.
