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.

Booking.com: Tell the Truth

Days ago, Booking.com bowed to pro-Israel activists and started describing all of Jerusalem as a “city in Israel” – literally erasing Palestinian East Jerusalem. Let’s get Booking.com to tell the truth: East Jerusalem is occupied territory.

End the Deadly Exchange

When US law enforcement trade tactics with the Israeli police and military, Israel deepens its military occupation and the US heightens its violence of policing.

Write to dareen tatour

Just weeks ago Dareen Tatour, a young Palestinian, walked through the gates of the prison where she’ll spend the next five months – for writing a poem. This absurd criminalization of her poetry could not be a clearer demonstration of the repression Palestinian cultural voices face.

Senators: Investigate Israeli Violence!

No one should be killed for taking part in a peaceful protest. It’s up to us to call on progressive Senators to investigate Israel’s massacre in Gaza that killed over 100 Palestinians wounded 12,000 others.
