Leading BDS campaigner Omar Barghouti writes:
After the semi-coordinated, effective campaign against Veolia and Alstom across several European countries, this is the first fully coordinated BDS campaign in Europe, targeting the main Israeli exporter of agricultural produce (including products of colonial settlements), Agrexco-Carmel.
It is worth noting that the coalition against Agrexco-Carmel in France alone includes 5 national French parties and more than 85 NGOs, forming the largest (by far) coalition in the West working on a BDS-related campaign. Some major… farmers… unions are also part of that impressive coalition.
By coordinating this campaign across several European countries, BDS activists in France, Italy, the UK and Belgium (more countries are joining soon!) have reached a higher level of effectiveness and public awareness in Europe than seen before.
The Palestinian civil society BDS National Committee, BNC, the reference for the global BDS movement, has strongly endorsed this uniquely promising campaign and is in full coordination with its European leaders.
