Kenne Mwikya talks about Israel's ties with "conservative and anti-freedom elements" of Kenya.

People's solidarity lies with the Palestinian people, as both Africans and Palestinians have been under some form colonial oppression through history.
.@Nawajaa : Divestment and boycott campaigns are working. We hope sanctions against Israel will start from Africa, which can then have a rolling effect.

We know the BDS movement is working because Israel is trying to delegitimize and sabotage it but is failing at it.
.@Shokispeare "The GSR called for a resolution to recognize Israel's regime as apartheid and target sanctions including a military embargo is our obligation to guarantee that our governments meet these demands across the African continent"
"We are building the network across the Global South to build coordinated, synchronized & effective action

We want to have all 54 African countries represented at a rally like this next year!" .@Shokispeare
Rev. Kolade "The Palestine situation has called our Christianity into question.

From Kairos Nigeria we are questioning pilgrimage that does not respect human rights, the pilgrimage that is one sided and supports Israeli occupation and oppression of the Palestinian people."
Maureen Kasuku, Kenya "We are bringing feminists across the continent on board with the BDS campaigning.

I hope that the Global South campaign and all African countries can form a formidable BDS movement"

Israel's war crimes in Gaza are no accident. They are 𝗯𝘆 𝗱𝗲𝘀𝗶𝗴𝗻.

Lebanon 2006: Israel implemented a policy of extreme violence committing mass murder and destruction of civilian infrastructure in a Beirut suburb, after failing to crush the resistance.

2008: Israel formally adopted the 𝗗𝗮𝗵𝗶𝘆𝗮 𝗗𝗼𝗰𝘁𝗿𝗶𝗻𝗲, making disproportionate force against civilian populations the official policy of the army. The doctrine’s logic is that terrorizing civilians will force the resistance to stop.

UN Fact-Finding Mission on Gaza 2009 says 𝗗𝗮𝗵𝗶𝘆𝗮 𝗗𝗼𝗰𝘁𝗿𝗶𝗻𝗲 involves "the application of disproportionate force & the causing of great damage & destruction to civilian property & infrastructure, & suffering to civilian populations," to deter resistance groups.

The Jerusalem Declaration on Antisemitism (JDA), despite its omission of representative Palestinian perspectives, provides an alternative to the fraudulent IHRA definition in the fight against anti-Jewish racism, discrimination and hostility.
The JDA largely respects freedom of expression related to the struggle for Palestinian rights, including BDS advocacy and opposition to Zionism & to Israel’s regime of occupation, settler-colonialism & apartheid.
Definitions alone cannot dismantle antisemitism. Progressives must commit to dismantling anti-Jewish racism alongside all other forms of racism and oppression. We endorse the following publication from progressive Jewish partners.
