Cofounder of the Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) and leading light of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement, Omar Barghouti discusses the burgeoning of support from civil society worldwide for BDS since the horrific slaughter visited on Gaza by Israel in winter 2008- 2009 and the Mavi Mara massacre. Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) refers to an international economic campaign initiated by the July 9, 2005, call of 171 Palestinian non-governmental organizations "… for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel Until it Complies with International Law and Universal Principles of Human Rights." The three stated goals of the campaign are: 1. An end to Israel's "occupation and colonization of all Arab lands", as well as "dismantling of the Wall;" 2. Israeli recognition of the "fundamental rights of the Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel to full equality;" and 3. Israeli respect, protection, and promotion of "the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and properties as stipulated in United Nations General Assembly Resolution 194." http://bdsmovement.net/

Part 1: Nabi Saleh Protests Against Israeli Blood Diamonds 25-06-2010.wmv

planxtysumoud | June 25, 2010 | 9:54

Today, yet again, protestors in Nabi Salah were subjected to merciless Israeli violence with one youth injured and ambulanced away for treatment. This time, however, the perpetrators were repeatedly challenged by a brave, brave woman: Huwaida Arraf, who blocked with her body two Israeli Occupation Forces soldiers from firing killer, high velocity tear gas projectiles at some stone throwing youth. With telling truth she informed them that: "The demonstration was over and their continued presence was designed to provoke and intimidate and to go home". Her pleas were in vain as the IOF made continuous terrorising forays on foot and jeep into the village until late into the evening. Prior to the protest, at the cermony in the village square honouring the many Palestinians jailed for inordinate periods of time by Israel for resisting the Occupation, she urged people of live conscience worldwide to boycott Israeli blood diamonds as the cut diamonds are the foundation of the Israeli economy and amount to some $20 billion in exports annually. Huwaida Arraf is a Palestinian-American human rights activist who co-founded the International Solidarity Movement and is currently chair of the Free Gaza Movement, she was on board Challenger 1, one of the six siege-breaking ships ferrying desperately needed humanitarian supplies to Gaza when the flotilla was murderously attacked in international waters by Israeli commandos on 31st May 2010 – nine other human rights activists aboard the Turkish ship, Mavi Marmara were murdered in cold blood, . Huwaida witnessed the terrorist attack on the Marmara before her own ship was boarded and its passengers and crew subjected to Israeli savagery. In August 2008, Huwaida was on the Free Gaza boats that sailed from Cyprus to Gaza, the first boats to challenge Israel's closure of the Strip and dock in Gaza Port in over 40 years. She has since lead 4 other successful solidarity missions to Gaza with the Free Gaza Movement. In February 2009 Huwaida was part of a National Lawyers Guild delegation that traveled to Gaza to document possible Israeli violations of international law and war crimes that may have been committed during Operation Cast Lead

Beit Jala Protest Against the Apartheid Wall and Theft of Land 20-06-2010 (2 Parts)

Published June 20, 2010 on Palestine Video

Part 1

Beit Jala 20 June 2010

justicewheels June 20, 2010Israeli occupation forces today in Beit Jala engaged in beatings, burning of fields, and attacking peaceful demonstrators, bystanders, and reporters. Two young Palestinains: Mohammed Masalma and Thaer Mahmoud were injured after severe beatings with hands and clubs (they were both near their homes and not participating in the demonstration). Several demonstrators were also roughed-up. Occupation enforcers also attacked six reporters and prevented them from doing their job of covering the event: Yousef Shahin (Palmedia), AbdelHafith Hashlamon (European News Aghency), Nasser AlShayukhi (associated Press), Mamon Wazwaz (APA), Musa AlShaer (France Press), and Najeh Hashlamon (ABA). The Israeli occupation forces (thugs) also aimed their gas canisters at dry fields managing to set a fire that engulfed an olive grove (fortunately, the Palestinian fire department quick response saved most of the field and the nearby homes). The apartheid forces also aimed tear gas at far away homes in Beit Jala to send a message of fear to the local population. And Israeli Occupation 'intelligence' Officer Fadi came at the end to mock us and call out my name with his loud speaker.

Beit Jala Protest 20-06-2010.wmv

planxtysumoud June 20, 2010Today's protest was marked by the brutalization of the small number of demonstrators who attended – as well as some TV reporters – by mainly, the Border Police section of Israeli Occupation Forces. Percussion grenades and clubs were employed to corral the protestors behind razor wire strung across a street whilst the spendthrift use of high velocity tear gas projectiles set fire to an olive grove which a unit of the local fire brigade had to douse. Despite the brutality, the protests are set to continue with renewed vigour and anger at the theft of Beit Jala land for the construction of a new section of the Apartheid-Annexation Wall and the consequent expansion of Israeli "settler" colonies sheltering behind it.

Occupation Municipality Tightening the Noose – License Problems for Palestinian Merchants in Damasco´s Gate

Published June 20, 2010 on Palestine Video

License Problems Merchants in Damasco´s Gate

aicvideo June 20, 2010The Damascus Gate entering the north of Jerusalem's Old City is a traditional center of commerce where people from different parts of the city and, before the Israeli occupation, from the West Bank, come to buy products of various kinds.

This custom even for Jerusalemites now appears to be threatened by a new Jerusalem Municipality policy regarding street traders in the area. The Jerusalem municipality decided to review and then renew the licenses of traders, ostensibly to standardize their employment situation. However, in reality this is leading to the revocation of licenses and harassment of traders with threats of fines.
