Will the new Israeli government move to annex the West Bank and how do we respond?

What steps should we take to build the BDS campaign following the historic UK Supreme Court ruling?

Welcome:

Jayne Taylor, Vice chair of Unite Executive Council and Chair of Unite International Committee. 

Speakers:

Omar Barghouti, co-founder of the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement. BDS is a Palestinian-led movement for freedom, justice and equality which upholds the simple principle that Palestinians are entitled to the same rights as the rest of humanity. Inspired by the South African anti-apartheid movement, the BDS call urges action to pressure Israel to comply with international law. BDS is now a vibrant global movement made up of unions, academic associations, churches and grassroots movements across the world. In 2018 it was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.
