Boycott – Divestment – Sanction. BDS
So, are we for it or against it?
The arguments against I’ve heard include: it won’t work. OK, but that being so, why do we use Sanctions against e.g. Iran, Zimbabwe…?
They’re ‘inappropriate’, so why do we…..?
Or; ‘Boycott of Israeli Universities is a blow against academic freedom’. Which sounds OK until you examine the academic freedoms of Palestinian academics.
Divestment. OK if you own shares. I don’t & I bank at the Co-op, so I hope I’m OK. I’m sure someone will tell me if I’m wrong.
what do you think???
