Boston activists protesting water rights violations by Israel also urged lawmakers to reject an anti-BDS bill in the Massachusetts state senate, 14 July. (Barbara Wilhelm)

An anti-boycott amendment was withdrawn in the Massachusetts senate on 14 July following a campaign by Palestine solidarity groups.

The amendment, which was tacked onto an unrelated economic bill, would have blacklisted individuals and businesses that engage with the Palestinian-led boycott of Israel.

Amendment 133 was withdrawn within just a few hours of being proposed by Massachusetts State Senator Cynthia Creem.
