Earlier this week the UK government announced that it would be imposing a ban on public bodies from boycotting Israeli goods.
The government’s decision to impose a ban on public bodies is a grave violation of democratic freedoms and rights. This seems a worrying precursor for boycott of Israel as a tool to highlight violations of international law to be permanently banned in the UK.
We are urging all politically conscious individuals to sign the petition and to take immediate action against the ban.
