BDS India Convention Calls For Total Boycott Of Israel

March 8, 2016 — An appeal for the total boycott of Israel was made at the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions(BDS) India Convention held on 6 March 2016 at New Delhi’s Gandhi Peace Foundation as a mark of protest against the apartheid policies and the genocidal campaign of Israel against Palestine. The intellectuals and activists coming from different parts of the country unanimously passed three resolutions at the BDS India Convention being organised by Indian People in Solidarity with Palestine.

An appeal was made in these resolutions for cancelling the proposed visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Israel, to suspend all the agreements-collaborations with Israel and for economic, academic and cultural boycott of Israel. It was also agreed to take this issue with the masses through widespread campaigns. During the Convention a consensus emerged that any campaign against Zionism cannot be carried out effectively without exposing its ideological partners viz. Hindutva fascists. We need to convince the common people that the secret behind the increasing proximity between the murderers of Gaza and the murderers of Gujarat is that both are enemies of people.
