Forum on the Right to Boycott and Support Palestinian Rights

When: Saturday, June 10, 2017, 10:30 am to 1:00 pm
Where: Central Square Library • 45 Pearl Street • Cambridge

We will continue to boycott for justice until...

As anticipated, legislation has now been filed which aims to penalize supporters of BDS in Massachusetts. This legislation (S.1689 /H.1685), deceptively titled “An Act Prohibiting Discrimination in State Contracts,” is in fact a dangerous attempt to restrict our right to use boycotts to advocate for Palestinian human rights.

The legislation pretends to be anti-discrimination, but a substantial paper-trail shows that in fact it is part of a national effort to penalize supporters of BDS. During this era of Trump-inspired efforts to curtail our rights, it is especially important to block this legislation.
