South Africa groups to join anti-Israel move

South Africa groups to join anti-Israel move

Ahlul Bayt News Agency - A South African party and a rights group are set to join the global campaign against the Israeli regime for its crimes against the Palestinians.

The South African Communist Party and the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions SA, also known as the BDS South Africa, say they will soon launch their action plan against Tel Aviv.

The move follows the Israel regime’s obstruction of a visit by South Africa’s Minister of Higher Education Blade Nzimande to the occupied territories.

Nzimande said Tel Aviv was trying to conceal its atrocities against the Palestinian nation by not allowing concerned visitors to go and see what is truly happening in the occupied Palestinian territories.

In reaction to the denial of entry, the South African Communist Party, the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU) and the BDS South Africa called on the government to expel the Israeli ambassador to South Africa.

The organizations have announced that if their demand is not met, they would stage a protest march on the Israeli embassy on May 15.

The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement started its campaign to increase economic and political pressure on Israel in 2005.

Through its efforts, the international pro-Palestinian campaign has gained the support of many unions, businesses and humanitarian organizations across the globe and has forced Israel to face a widening boycott campaign.

The BDS seeks to end the illegal Israeli activities on the occupied Palestinian lands, which it considers as genocide, crimes against humanity, ethnic cleansing, land theft, mass displacement, environmental destruction, and apartheid. The group’s eventual goal is to end the Israeli occupation.
