BRING 'EM TO BOOK
Our mates at Corporate Watch have a done a book, snappily entitled “Targeting Israeli Apartheid: A Boycott Divestment and Sanctions Handbook” - an exhaustive rundown of who’s who in the Israeli economy , encouraging campaigners to take direct action against the British companies complicit in Israeli apartheid, militarism and colonisation. (yes, real research, not just Wikipedia hacking like us!)
The book begins by examining the Israeli economy, industry by industry, and suggesting where the movement should focus its campaigning energy in order to be most effective (sneek peek: Barclays are a top target!). Part two contains five in-depth geographical case studies. The final section looks at how campaigners can bring the fight home to the UK (and there’s also a few cartoons).
