Group Description

Boycotts and divestments will be very effective non-violent resistance to the ongoing occupation and oppression perpetuated by Israel. The educational aspects of these campaigns can be the most powerful tool to activists to reach out an audience not usually accessible by other means (consumers and the economic sector). The precedent of the success of this campaign is found in is
found in the major part it played in the abolition of Apartheid in South Africa. This call to boycott Israeli goods and services has grown dramatically since February. See our web page at http://www.BoycottIsraeliGoods.org for details.

There are already initiatives of boycotts in many countries. A group of Israeli Jews and Arabs called last year for a boycott of Israeli products and leisure tourism (Matzpun, Hebrew for conscience; http://www.matzpun.com/). Gush Shalom has called for a boycott of settlement products (see http://www.gush-shalom.org/). Some groups in Europe have also called for boycotts (e.g. http://www.bismilah.com/stories&facts/boycott_zionism.htm, http://www.inminds.com/boycott-israel.html ). A "Boycott Israeli goods" campaign was also launched last year by British citizens and members of the British Parliament (see http://www.aquascript.com/psc/campaigns.asp?d=y&id=100 ). Divestment campaigns were initiated at Universities in Michigan and California. Al-Awda (http://Al-Awda.org) has been working on asking Intel to divest and disinvest from Israel. Intel built a plant on land whose owners were driven out by Israeli forces after the war.
