I pledge to support the call issued by 170-plus Palestinian civil society institutions for a campaign of boycott, divestment and sanctions against the state of Israel, comparable to the campaign that helped bring down South African Apartheid.
Together with these institutions I will support these non-violent measures until Israel complies with international law and respects the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people to self-determination. This involves:
1 Ending its occupation and colonisation of all Palestinian lands;
2. Recognising the fundamental rights of the Palestinian-Arab citizens of Israel to full equality; and
3. Respecting the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and properties as stipulated in UN Resolution 194.
I further urge the Irish government to uphold international law and impose sanctions on Israel until Israel complies with the above demands.
