SAIA Carleton launches pension divestment campaign

“. . . the global movement for boycott, divestment and sanctions, BDS, against Israel presents not only a progressive, anti-racist, sophisticated, sustainable, moral and effective form of civil, non-violent resistance, but a real chance of becoming the political catalyst and moral anchor for a strengthened, reinvigorated international social movement capable of reaffirming the rights of all humans to freedom, equality and dignity and the right of nations to self-determination.” Omar Barghouti

“It reminded me so much of what happened to us black people in South Africa. I have seen the humiliation of the Palestinians

— Desmond Tutu
