BDS Quebec 2010 Conference

From October 22nd to 24th, artists, activists, academics, and community members will converge for a historic conference aiming to build momentum for the global boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement. The conference aims to provide a space to reflect on recent successes, assess current challenges, and chart future directions to support the Palestinian struggle for freedom and self-determination. The BDS movement traces its’ origins to the Palestinian call to boycott in 2005, endorsed by over 170 civil society organizations.
