Divestment from Israel is a call to action on the level of corporate investors. Investors are called on to withdrawal their stocks and funds from corporations complicit in Israel’s violations of international law and Palestinian rights. Individual consumers are called on to show their opposition to Israel’s violations by participating in a consumer boycott of Israeli companies, goods, and services, or of international companies involved in Israeli policies. And, given the dependency of Israel upon global markets, U.S. sanctions at a state, regional, or institutional level can be a highly effective measure to bring about real pressure.

Phyllis Bennis, an Institute for Policy Studies Fellow and independent Palestinian activist/author and founding member of the BDS Movement, and Omar Barghouti will discuss the Palestinian Civil Society call for boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel until it complies with international law and universal principles of human rights.

Join us at 7pm for the main event, FREE and open to the public!

There will be a special reception to meet the speakers at 5:30, with a $20 admission. Refreshments will be provided. Please contact Nasser Barghouti at nasserb63@yahoo.com to RSVP for the reception by January 5th.

These events are hosted by the BDS Movement.
