TWT_054 resisting the government boycott bill

The government is introducing an ‘anti-boycott bill’ that, if passed, could dramatically affect our ability to campaign for social and climate justice. Dozens of US states have passed similar laws, targeting the Palestinian led call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaigns, aiming to stifle solidarity and lend protection to corporations complicit in war crimes. Join us to view the film Boycott, which tells the story of the US fightback against these laws, and for a post- film discussion and introduction to some of the 60+ civil society groups taking part in our ‘Right to Boycott’ campaign in Britain.
