Boycott Apartheid Israel rally

Friends of Palestine WA has called a major rally to support the international BDS (boycott, divestment & sanctions) campaign against Apartheid Israel. As the Victorian government is pushing a major crackdown on Palestine rights activists in Melbourne, it is important that we have a maximum showing here in Perth.


Date: Sat 17 September

Time: 1pm

Place: Murray Street Mall (Perth City)

What is BDS?
In 2005, Palestinian civil society issued a call for a campaign of boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel until it complies with international law and Palestinian human rights.

Why “Apartheid”?
Israel’s regime over the Palestinian people amounts to apartheid because it displays many of the main features of the crime (including racial discrimination) as defined by international law.

Join us
Help expose some of the companies in Perth that profit from or support Israel’s violent, military occupation of Palestine.

Please come along and bring your friends. Publicity material can be downloaded below.

A public forum with MIKO PELED

His father was an Israeli soldier in 1948 and a general during the 1967 war. In 1997 his niece was the victim of a suicide bombing.
