International boycott, divestment, and sanctions 
(BDS) efforts helped topple South Africa’s brutal apartheid regime. In 
this urgent book, Omar Barghouti makes the case for a rights-based BDS 
campaign to stop Israel’s rapacious occupation, colonization, and 
apartheid against the Palestinian people. This considered, convincing 
collection contributes to the growing debate on Israel’s violations of 
international law and points the way forward to a united global civil 
society movement for freedom, justice, self-determination, and equality 
for all.

OMAR BARGHOUTI is an independent Palestinian commentator and human 
rights activist. He is a founding member of the Palestinian Campaign for
 the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) and the Palestinian
 Civil Society Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign.

“Omar Barghouti’s lucid and morally compelling book is perfectly timed 
to make a major contribution to this urgently needed global campaign for
 justice, freedom and peace.”

—Archbishop Desmond Tutu

“No one has done more to build the intellectual, legal, and moral case 
for BDS than Omar Barghouti. The global Palestinian solidarity movement 
has been transformed and is on the cusp of major breakthroughs.”

—Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine

“When powerful governments will not act, ordinary people must take the 
lead... Essential reading for all who care about justice and the plight 
of an oppressed people.”

—Ken Loach, filmmaker
