Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) is a Palestinian-led movement for freedom, justice and equality. BDS upholds the simple principle that Palestinians are entitled to the same rights as the rest of humanity.
The Palestinian BDS National Committee, the broadest Palestinian civil society coalition leading the BDS movement, is calling on all Arab and progressive civil society and grassroots groups worldwide to put meaningful pressure on the UAE’s despotic rulers hosting the COP28 from November 30th to December 12th, including through a boycott of the conference.
"We appeal to progressives and social movements everywhere to pressure their governments to impose strict military embargoes on all states that are perpetrating crimes against humanity and war crimes, including Israel, Saudi Arabia, UAE and Myanmar."
