ACTION ALERT! Write Joan Armatrading!

Don’t Let Armatrading Play Us As Supporters of Israeli Racism and Apartheid

Joan Armatrading’s statement posted on her homepage calling on leaders of Israel and Palestine, Benjamin Netanyahu, Mahmoud Abbas and Khaled Meshal, to “take that step” to solve “the problem” is a backwards way of acknowledging protests of her recent concert in Tel Aviv, Israel. When she plays SF at the Palace of Fine Arts on Tuesday Aug 10 we want her to know that to flagrantly disregard the Palestinian call for academic and cultural boycott is to take a stand with racism and apartheid.

“To Know is Not Enough” How Hampshire became the First to Divest

There is a new documentary and website out about divestment at Hampshire college.

“To Know is Not Enough” How Hampshire became the First to Divest

a short documentary about the Hampshire College campaign for divestment from the occupation of Palestine. Hampshire is often credited with being the first US college to divest for the occupation, and this video attempts to understand the group and the campaign that made it happen. The video is constructed from interviews with over a dozen student activists from Hampshire College’s ‘Students for Justice in Palestine.’
Film completed 2010 by Will Delphia (a Hampshire Student). Runtime: 30 min.

Action Alert: Support the Olympia Food Co-Op’s Historic Boycott!

Take a look below at the action alert from our allies up in Olympia, Washington!  The Olympia Food Co-op is the first US grocery store to publicly deshelve Israeli products in support of the Palestinian call for Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions!

But, we’ve been hearing reports of major push-back.  The main rabbi in Olympia is publicly boycotting the Co-op.   Stand With Us is calling for others to boycott the Co-op and is initiating a letter-writing campaign to the local paper.  Co-op staff have received harassing phone calls, and there is a major protest against this decision being planned as well.

Please take a moment to write to the Co-Op board and sign the petition — see below for more details!

Olympia Food Co-op Boycotts Israeli Goods!
Now We Need Your Help!

Just last week the Board of Directors of the Olympia Food Co-op in Olympia, WA, the hometown of Rachel Corrie, took the courageous step of instituting a boycott of Israeli goods, the first grocery boycott of Israel in the US.

Already, there is a movement afoot to condemn the Co-op for taking this important stand. Please help us thank the Olympia Food Co-op and its board of directors for supporting human rights in Palestine!

More Information

Olympia BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) is a grassroots network of community members in Olympia, WA, joining the call by Palestinian civil society for a non-violent, global movement of boycott, divestment, and sanctions of Israel, until it meets the requirements of human rights and international law.

In answering to the Palestinian Call, we stand with Desmond Tutu, Naomi Klein, Elvis Costello, Richard Falk and many, many others. The failure of elected officials to hold Israel accountable for its atrocious actions forces global civil society to act, for a non-violent solution and justice for Palestinians and Israelis alike.
