DSA votes overwhelmingly to endorse BDS: our recommended reading on BOYCOTT, DIVESTMENT, AND SANCTION of Israel

August 8, 2017

This weekend the Democratic Socialists of America voted overwhelmingly to endorse the BDS movement


The call to boycott, divest from, and sanction Israel for the occupation of Palestine comes just weeks after Congressional lawmakers introduced a measure to make support for BDS a felony punishable by up to $1 million or 20 years in prison.

Boycott has emerged as one of the significant cultural and political practices of our time. Now, as freedoms of speech and protest come under ever greater attack from the US government, affirming the BDS movement and standing in solidarity with Palestinians and other occupied peoples is more important than ever.

Here, we present our recommended reading list on the boycott, divestment from, and sanction of Israel, including selections from activists, artists, academics, journalists and fiction writers, from both within and outside of Palestine.
