Boicote, Desinvestimento, Sanções (BDS) é um movimento palestino liderado pela liberdade, justiça e igualdade. BDS defende o princípio simples de que os palestinos têm direito aos mesmos direitos que o resto da humanidade.
Statements in support of Palestinian rights, many advocating for BDS, have been endorsed by more than 350 academic departments, programs, centers, unions and societies and garnered nearly 24,000 signatures from scholars, researchers, students and university staff worldwide.
Update: The UC Berkeley student president has announced that he will not veto the motion.
The student senate at the University of California at Berkeley voted early Thursday morning in favor of a bill calling on the UC administration to divest from companies which profit from Israel’s occupation.
