The Palestinian people have endured over 5 decades of Israeli occupation, the longest belligerent occupation on earth. Their land is being colonised by illegal settlements on the West Bank, while Gaza is under perpetual siege. This is not just occupation, siege and colonisation: as Human Rights Watch have recently announced, this is apartheid.

In Israel-proper, Palestinians are treated as third class citizens, formalised by the so-called ‘nation state law’. Since 2000, over 10,000 Palestinian civilians have been killed by Israel, nearly 8 times the number of Israelis who have been killed. In the recent Israeli onslaught against Gaza, 256 Palestinians were killed, including 66 children.

In this video, I explain why I'm backing Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions on Israel - including answering the questions and concerns I had, and why we owe this to the Palestinian people.
