#BDS Event: 'Boycott Israel Conference: Will Scotland Lead The Way?'
"Organised by Scottish Friends of Palestine Saturday 19 March 2011 10am to 5pm
Renfield St Stephen's Church Centre, Bath Street Glasgow
2011 is the year of election to the Scottish Parliament.
Can those parties vying to form the next Scottish government be persuaded of the case for action against the state of Israel?
Will Scotland be the first country to announce a boycott of Israel?
In this election year, we must make it known, loud and clear, all of us who support the rights of the Palestinian people, that we are not prepared to see our taxes spent supporting trade with Israel.
Israel's commercial, academic, sporting and cultural relations with other nations provide the state with a veneer of respectability, while it boycotts the rights and the livelihoods of the Palestinian people. The state of Israel must be boycotted.
The speakers at our conference will present the arguments for boycott, disinvestment and sanctions. Please show your support by participating, joining the debate, and spreading the word.
Boycott is an ambitious aim and, with your help, possible.
