Munayyer to Speak About Palestinian-Led Boycott of Israel

Yousef Munayyer

Alumnus Yousef Munayyer, a Palestinian Israeli citizen and former director of the Jerusalem Fund and Palestinian Center in Washington D.C., will speak on “The BDS Imperative: Why Imposing Costs on Israel is Necessary” on Monday, March 23 from 7-9 p.m. in 134 Hasbrouck Lab.

In 2005, Palestinian civil society issued a call for a campaign of boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel until it complies with international law and Palestinian human rights.

The talk, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by UMass Students for Justice in Palestine.
