Watch Jewish Voice for Peace Executive Director Rebecca Vilkomerson on Democracy Now! breaking down the impact of the NY anti-BDS legislation.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has issued the first-ever executive order forcing state agencies to divest from any organizations aligned with the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.

The order is a McCarthyite attack intended to suppress campaigns in support of Palestinian freedom and human rights. We call on Governor Cuomo to rescind his blatantly unconstitutional executive order immediately.

Dear Governor Cuomo:

Repeal your unconstitutional executive order punishing institutions that support the Palestinian call for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) to achieve freedom for Palestinians and protest Israeli human rights abuses.

Boycotts are a constitutionally protected, nonviolent tactic used by social movements to achieve justice and equality.

New York State should not single out supporters of Palestinian rights for a politically-motivated McCarthyite blacklist.
