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.

Israel's ongoing military occupation of Palestinian territory and its repeated invasions of the Gaza strip have triggered a fierce backlash against Israeli policies virtually everywhere in the world -- except the United States.  "The Occupation of the American Mind" takes an eye-opening look at this critical exception, zeroing in on pro-Israel public relations efforts within the US.
