The first meeting decided that we should form a Sydney-wide group and build a broad campaign which welcomes all supporters of BDS.  Now we need to plan some concrete activities.

The success of campaigns like BDS depend on our ongoing efforts to build support for our cause and stimulate debate. We need to explain the boycott to members of the public and listen to their responses so we can build a strong campaign to expose and end Israeli apartheid.

  1. We have been doing some BDS actions in the west. We are very commited to do something together. If the meeting is confirmed I will send the invitation to all the groups conected to us.

  2. I do not support giving ammunition to those who believe that the very existence of Israel is an affront — and that is just what BDS does in its present form. It’s Israel’s attitude that needs changing, NOT the existence of the state. There are too many on the BDS side, including Hamas and Hezbollah, who believe the “Protocols of Zion” is a valid document. I prefer saner company.
