Speak Out For Human Rights and International Law

Use our resources to break into the media conversation!  The Palestinian call for boycott, divestment, and sanctions is an often misunderstood topic.  The following resources are meant to help you educate your community about this important nonviolent tactic and how we can all help bring an end to the occupation.

Write an Op-Ed

Make your local editorial page a tool for spreading our message about boycott, divestment and sanctions.  Use the following tools to craft your own op-ed for publication.


Blog about boycott, divestment and sanctions

Keep up with the latest boycott and divestment news on the US Campaign's blog and Facebook.  When you get an update comment about it on other blogs.  Don't be afraid to post on "hostile" blogs that support Israel's occupation, but don't forget to inform possible allies who read blogs like the Daily Kos, Huffington Post, and Informed Comment.


Twitter

On July 9th, we're going to be using Twitter to get the word out about
BDS. Here's how you can get in on the action:

1) Follow us on Twitter by clicking here.
2) On July 9th, we'll be sending out a BDS related 'Tweet' every hour.
We'll be encouraging our Twitter followers to 'retweet' our posts.
3) Some of the messages will be directed to Motorola and Caterpillar's
Twitter pages
. It's particularly important for you to retweet those posts
so that Moto and Cat know that we're concerned about the human rights
abuses being carried out with their products.
