February 2nd, 2016

Here is a recording of the webinar.

The movement for Palestinian rights grows more creative and dynamic every day, yielding so many achievements that it can be hard to keep up! At the US Campaign, we maintain a growing list of boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) victories nationwide, which total more than 150 to date! Visit www.endtheoccupation.org/usbdsvictories for the inspiring list of BDS breakthroughs!

One of the most exciting frontiers has been municipal campaigns, where US Campaign member groups and others are challenging their local governments and councils to refuse to contract with or invest in companies involved in Israel's violations of Palestinian rights.

Last October, Portland, Oregon took its first step towards becoming "occupation-free" when its Human Rights Commission unanimously endorsed placing human rights violators Caterpillar, HP, G4S, and Motorola Solutions on a city no-buy list! This occurred shortly after human welfare commissioner Cheryl Davila was fired for bringing forth a similar resolution in Berkeley, California. And of course, who could forget the watershed coalition-led campaigns that led St. Louis, Missouri to dump Veolia and Durham, North Carolina to drop G4S?

These valiant efforts have inspired activists nationwide to pursue similar campaigns in their cities today -- and you could too! 

Join activists from Portland, Durham, and the Bay Area who will share resources and lessons learned for getting your city to boycott or divest from Israel's occupation. Click to register today!
