Brings together Palestinian and international activists in the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.
“The BDS movement is the most enlightened, imaginative, moral, fearless and dynamic blow for freedom I have known for many years. I believe it will be a vital factor in the liberation of Palestine. The inspiring voices in this book will help achieve that goal.” – John Pilger
“Reading this book, talking about it and acting upon its ideas is a further political act against an injustice that has lasted a lifetime. “ – John Berger
