Boycott, Divest, & SING: Boston BDS Day of Action

When: Wednesday, July 9, 2014, 9:00 am to 10:15 am
Where: Park Street T Station • Boston

RSVP on facebook

July 9 marks the 10 year anniversary of the International Court of Justice’s historic ruling declaring Israel's wall on occupied Palestinian land to be illegal.  Join us as we celebrate the victories and confront the challenges still facing the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaign. We will march through downtown Boston, stopping at several BDS targets–calling on pension fund TIAA-CREF to divest from occupation profiteers, Veolia to respect human rights, and Macy's to stop selling SodaStream. 

Want to join in a musical flash mob? In honor of Stevie Wonder's decision to boycott "Friends of the Israeli Defense Forces" this year, we will perform an anti-occupation rendition of his hit song "Superstition." Two optional rehearsals will take place on July 7 + 8, from 6:30-8 PM, at 549 Columbus Ave, or you can learn the dance from a video.  Email to join!
Want to help make the day of action a success? We will hold a sign-making and phone-calling party on Wednesday, July 2, from 6-8 PM at 549 Columbus Ave.  We need all hands on deck!

Cosponsors include American Friends Service Committee, Grassroots International, Jewish Voice for Peace Boston, United for Justice with Peace, National Lawyers Guild at Suffolk Law, Cambridge Bethlehem People to People Project, American Jews for a Just Peace, Boston Coalition for Palestinian Rights, Boston Feminists for Liberation, and Boston College Students for Justice in Palestine.
