BDS Wellington meeting 6pm every Tuesday at 128

BDS3

Our Wellington group supports the global Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. BDS is an effective global non-violent movement initiated by Palestinian civil society in 2005, which has three prinicples:

* End the occupation and colonization of the 1967 occupied territories (The West Bank, Gaza, East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights)

* Recognize the fundamental rights of the Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel to full equality; and

* Respect, protect and promote the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and properties as stipulated in UN Resolution 194.

The BDS call was endorsed by over 170 Palestinian political parties, organizations, trade unions and movements. The signatories represent the refugees, Palestinians in the OPT, and Palestinian citizens of Israel.

This movement is anchored in universal human rights and international law in opposition to military occupation, settler-colonialism, and apartheid, something people of conscience of all ethnicities, races, and religions can support.
An ethical struggle for justice and equal rights in every context entails strongly condemning all forms of racism, anti-semitism, racist symbols, stereotypes and hate speech. We call on people to join us in a morally consistent stance that opposes racism and bigotry in all forms.

The effective strategy for people of conscience to bring about these goals, are Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions. More info at: http://www.bdsmovement.net/bdsintro
