Adalah-NY: The New York Campaign for the Boycott of Israel

New York Campaign for the Boycott of Israel is a grassroots strategic alliance of concerned organizations and individuals in New York, formed to demand an immediate, unconditional, and permanent end to U.S. and U.S.-sponsored Israeli aggression in the Middle East. In response to the continuing injustices committed by the U.S. and Israel, which constitute gross violations of international law, Adalah-NY stands with the people of the Middle East in their demands for justice, equality, democracy, and respect for human rights.

BDS-MOVEMENT-

                                “Whether the current phase of Israel’s intensified repression and Palestinian popular resistance will evolve into a full-fledged intifada or not, one thing is already evident—a new generation of Palestinians is marching on the footsteps of previous generations, rising up en masse against Israel’s brutal, decades-old regime of occupation, settler colonialism and apartheid. “      (Statement from their website)

The BDS National  Committee  (BNC) has a very tied connection with Electronic Intifada.

Boycott from Within

http://bcprights.org/ )

The referred website (http://bcprights.org/) is closed. However, when searching, we could find some information.

The following statement was taken directly from AIC website.

Boycott from Within is a group of Israeli citizens that supports the Palestinian call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS). The AIC sat down with Israeli activist Ofer Neiman to discuss the Boycott from Within movement, its goals and what impact he thinks it will have on ending the Israeli occupation.

This  movement has  direct connection with Electronic Intifada  and consequently with BDS Moviment.net.

BOYCOTT-FROM-WITHI-ELECTRONICINTIFADABOYCOTT-FROM-WITHIN-BDS-

It is connected with http://www.alternativenews.org/english/ The Alternative Information Center (AIC) – a joint Palestinian-Israeli organization promoting justice, equality and peace for Palestinians and Israelis.

Statement directly from their website:
The AIC believes that peace can be just and lasting only when based on ending Israel’s colonial occupation, securing the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination and the right of refugees to return. Only such a just peace, based on international law, can guarantee individual and collective rights of both Palestinians and Israelis.

The AIC promotes a joint Palestinian-Israeli struggle and strongly opposes “normalization”, those actions that “normalize” Israel’s occupation policies while presenting the Israeli-Arab conflict as one of conflicting narratives, lack of understanding or something to be overcome through personal relationships and getting to know the “other”.

Founded in 1984, it is located at :

West Jerusalem     24 Hillel St. 3rd floor        Phone: +972 2 582 2234

Beit Sahour            Main Street Suk a-Shaab     Tel.: +972 2 277 5 444
