Labor for Palestine invites you to join us for the events below at Labor Notes in Chicago (descriptions from conference program) to build labor solidarity with the Palestinian-led Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, examples of which include LFP campaigns, ILWU Local 10 members’ refusal to handle Israeli Zim Line cargo, and historic resolutions from UAW 2865, UE, and CT AFL-CIO.
BDS demands an end to Israeli occupation and colonization of all Arab lands and dismantling the Wall; full equality for Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel; and implementation of the right of Palestinian refugees to return.
