#BDS: Dundee City Council flies the flag for Palestinians

Palestinian flag

Campaigners are celebrating the decision to fly the Palestinian flag from one of the most prominent council buildings in the heart of Dundee.
The flag has been raised over the Caird Hall along with those of Dundee's other twin city nations after the local authority agreed to what Lord Provost John Letforddescribed as a "compromise" suggestion.
Members of the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign'sDundee Group and Tayside for Justice in Palestine had called for the council to raise the flag in the wake of the attack on a vessel carrying aid to Gaza in May.
More than 3000 people signed a petition backing the move and calling for Dundee City Council to support the next aid flotilla and to boycott Israeli goods and services.
