John Minto speaks on BDS

Saturday 6th October 2018

John Minto, well known for his courage and political activism during the Springbok Tour of New Zealand in 1981, is joining us in Nelson to speak about the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement.

Join us at 6.30pm to chat over a Palestinian meal or later at 7.30pm to hear John speak about BDS. The meal will be $15 or $10 for students and unemployed. Please RSVP with numbers if you would like a meal to Menu to be announced in the next week!

BDS is a Palestinian-led movement for freedom, justice and equality. BDS upholds the simple principle that Palestinians are entitled to the same rights as the rest of humanity.

Israel is occupying and colonising Palestinian land, discriminating against Palestinian citizens of Israel and denying Palestinian refugees the right to return to their homes. Inspired by the South African anti-apartheid movement, the BDS call urges action to pressure Israel to comply with international law.

Palestinian kuffiyehs from the Hirbawi factory in Hebron will be available for purchase for $25, there will also be some Palestinian embroidery for sale.
