Sign the Petition to

National Security Subcommittee, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

As a supporter of the Palestinian civil society-led movement for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel, I am deeply disturbed by the biased, unbalanced nature of last month's hearing on BDS, which included no Palestinians or other supporters of BDS.

I urge the committee to hold a follow-up hearing with witnesses who support BDS so that the committee can get a more accurate understanding of the goals and impact of this movement.

BDS is a nonviolent strategy for attaining Palestinians' long-denied rights, including the right of Palestinian refugees to return to the homes from which they were ethnically cleansed by Israel, the right of Palestinian citizens of Israel to equality, and the right of Palestinians to live free from Israeli military occupation in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip.

Signed,

US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation
