For those left critics who oppose BDS because it would adversely affect Israeli workers, what about Palestinian workers? Don’t they count? Doesn’t apartheid matter? Will you side with an Israeli union federation deeply rooted in colonialism or with the Palestinian union federations who oppose it & are calling for the boycott of Israel? There isn’t much room for political sophistry here.
This is a reminder that no stone should be left unturned in building BDS. BDS can play a role in reversing the xenophobic trend which has brought the US labor movement to a dead-end.
