"We're taking names".....



Nikki Haley literally begged other ambassadors to support her UN resolution on Gaza (and not one voted for it).

Is she not a joke and an embarrassment?

The US and apartheid Israel are becoming increasingly isolated as nations around the world step out of their orbit into one that is more sane, caring, sharing and less committed to control and domination of others and nature.  A multi-polar world.

The US and Israel represent the forces of human enslavement to capital and religious dogma. A unipolar world.

Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) is a Palestinian-led movement for freedom, justice and equality. BDS upholds the simple principle that Palestinians are entitled to the same rights as the rest of humanity.

Israel is occupying and colonising Palestinian land, discriminating against Palestinian citizens of Israel and denying Palestinian refugees the right to return to their homes. Inspired by the South African anti-apartheid movement, the BDS call urges action to pressure Israel to comply with international law.

BDS is now a vibrant global movement made up of unions, academic associations, churches and grassroots movements across the world. Eleven years since its launch, BDS is having a major impact and is effectively challenging international support for Israeli apartheid and settler-colonialism.

BDS - now more than ever.

Aldous Huxley wrote in his book Brave New World - Revisited there was a movement in America and Britain (primarily) to educate people to resist propaganda, Religious, Military and Commercxial advertisement. kind of foundered at the beginnings of WW2. And the Slogan Slingers made sure the literature sort of disappeared.
