E-Newsletter, September 2009

Hi BACEIA Supporters!!

The summer has been good to us and we are looking forward to continuing work on the campaign.

Despite the summer lull, we have grown to more than 800 members!  
We are excited to welcome new supporters!

Event Report: Palestinian Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions: Lessons from South Africa

Two weeks ago the campaign co-organized the panel discussion, Palestine Solidarity, Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions: Lessons Learned from South Africa’s Anti-Apartheid Movement, sponsored by Break the Siege, Center for Political Education, and the Arab Resource and Organizing Center.

Read our report on the event here: http://www.baceia.org/2009/09/event-report/

We will continue to support educational events on the issue of Palestine and the BDS movement so check our website for more information on upcoming events.

Help us table!

Third Thursday tabling is gearing up for fall. If you are interested in tabling with us, let us know. Also if you have a group interested in doing regular tabling, we are more than happy to give a training and get the materials out to you.

Contact the tabling coordinators:

  • Andrea (SF) at aasalinas (at) gmail.com and/or
  • Kinneret (East Bay) at kinneret.israel (at) gmail.com.

We have tables and materials and can give those of you some pointers on tabling if you need it.

Products To Watch Out For

Thanks to all of you who have been reporting Israeli goods and US companies that support apartheid in Israel. As a reminder, the email address to report products is:  products@baceia.org

Right now we are working on a major rehaul of our product list and hope to have a much improved resource sheet out soon!

In the mean time we have listed two fair trade products for people to support on our website: http://www.baceia.org/resources/supportpfteconomy/

Check out the website!

Last but not least, don’t forget to take a peek at our website now and again for news and information about local, national and global BDS work.

A major new item that we’ve added to the website is the ability to sign the pledge online. The pledge is primarily intended for local people, though we invite anyone interested to sign and receive news about the campaign… so, help the campaign out by spreading the word to people who would be interested.

The online pledge can be found here: http://www.baceia.org/get-involved/sign-the-pledge/

If you have any questions about BTS or the BACEIA campaign, please drop us a line at breakthesiege@gmail.com

Spread the word!
In solidarity and with many thanks!
