hey so just a reminder not to buy israeli fruits and vegetables, sodastream home drink machines, ahava cosmetics, anything by HP, or sabra hummus, as these all benefit particularly severely from the oppression of palestinians and are current focuses of the global BDS movement
for other israeli products or for other products that benefit from the oppression of palestinians, consider your current economic ability to avoid purchasing them
also check with your local/regional/national BDS movements to see if they are targeting anything in particular that the global movement isn't
and consider getting involved in movements aimed at calling attention to the severity of the problems faced by Palestinians
it's no surprise that the U.S. Congress passed a resolution condemning the boycott. the reason why BDS exists is because governments have failed to hold Israel accountable.
(not to mention the bill itself was a veiled attack on Ilhan Omar at a time when she is being screamed at to "go back to her country")
also reminder that individually targeting a particular product is not a good strategy. organize with some local movement against it, or join in the targeted campaigns that already exist.
"Do your own research" is a fine answer to the following question:
Do you have a recommendation on which of the following groups I should learn more about first: https://bdsmovement.net/get-involved/join-a-bds-campaign?country=United+States
@emsenn you know, i'm not sure. i know mostly about the Jewish campaigns (e.g. JVP) and the USACBI. whichever ones seem most worth your time, i suppose, and whichever ones you think suit you best.
