In 2005, over 100 Palestinian civil society groups called for “international civil society organizations and people of conscience all over the world to impose broad boycotts and implement divestment initiatives against Israel similar to those applied to South Africa in the apartheid era”
 
In response to this call, many groups around the country are engaged in boycotts, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) efforts, which are having an impact.
 
Come to a forum to learn more about BDS and the “Hang Up on Motorola” campaign and to discuss whether this campaign might be an effective tool to help bring peace to the Middle East.
