In October, we went public with our campaign to get the City of Grand Rapids to adopt a resolution in support of divestment from companies profiting from the Israeli occupation of Palestinian land.
The Grand Rapids BDS Campaign is still going strong and we created this short video to help us promote the campaign and to demonstrate the broad base of support we have around justice for Palestine.
This campaign is modeled on the South African Anti-Apartheid Campaign of the 1980s. The Palestinian BDS Campaign is critical for those of us who live in the US, since the US government provides $3 Billion annually in military aid to Israel, supports the ongoing expansion of Israeli settlements and blocks any effort to enforce United Nations resolutions to against the illegal Israeli occupation of Palestinian land.
