What is BDS

Curious about what to Boycott? SAJFP is a member of the SA BDS Coalition.


The South African BDS Coalition is a network of Palestine Solidarity Organisations and is the South African affiliate to the Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC) that issued the call for international boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel in 2005. The BNC represents the broadest coalition of Palestinian civil society, including all political parties, trade unions, human rights and grass roots organisations.

The coalition exists to bring various solidarity organisations together, under common campaigns, structures, and principles. It therefore creates a platform for the different Palestine Solidarity Organisations to work together and support one another.
