As listed below, Labor for Palestine representatives are traveling far and wide to build trade union support for the growing international campaign of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against apartheid Israel.
This is particularly important in the United States, where labor officialdom — often without the knowledge or consent of union members — has invested billions of our union pension funds and retirement plans in State of Israel Bonds.
These same labor officials actively encourage the U.S. to provide the money and weapons that maintain the brutal siege on Gaza, ever-expanding settlements in the West Bank and Jerusalem, discrimination in the 1948 areas, and threats of war against Iran.
Those who back apartheid Israel have unlimited funds at their disposal. But Labor for Palestine relies entirely on your support.
