Lurias Hall (Upper Sherman)

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
