Boycott Israel Campaign mushrooms despite Repression: BDS 2016 Report

BDS impact:  round up for 2016

Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) is a Palestinian-led movement for freedom, justice and equality. BDS upholds the simple principle that Palestinians are entitled to the same rights as the rest of humanity.boycott_of_israel_bds_1

  Israel’s war of repression has failed to stop the continued growth of the BDS movement for Palestinian rights. The year 2016 will be remembered by Palestinians and supporters of Palestinian freedom, justice and equality, among other things, as Israel’s year of waging an all-out war on the Palestinian-led, global BDS movement for Palestinian rights, in a desperate attempt to crush it.

In this respect, 2016 will also be remembered as the year of Israel’s spectacular failure, as BDS grew further into the mainstream, and its impact on Israel’s regime of occupation, settler-colonialism and apartheid intensified.

Shame: EU gives 595 million euros Blackmail Payment to nazi dictator Erdogan

erdogans-blackmail
President Erdogan can at least claim credit for bringing back the terms PURGES and POGROMS into daily use.

refugee EU Turkey dealPurges because he has fired, exiled, murdered, imprisoned or tortured literally hundreds of thousands of his own citizens with little evidence beyond his own stalinist paranoia… see Erdogan vows to punish thought crimes.

And Pogroms because he gained absolute power by whipping up hate against the 18 million Kurdish minority and attacking them, killing thousands, reducing cities like Cizre to rubble  (see POGROM, CURFEW, GENOCIDE IN CIZRE) and invading Iraq and Syria to kill Kurds and ”redeem the Turkish empire”..(see Turkey vows to Destroy inspiring Rojava Revolution. )These  are straightforward nazi tactics.

Using refugees as blackmail is nothing new , nor is profiting by abusing them to work endless hours for hhardly any pay. Not for a politician whose own family controlled the supplies to ISIS and now other jihadi proxies who have caused such immeasurable human suffering.

What’s more, if you wore a striking T-shirt with a  witty phrase or suggestive drawing, it’s likely you’ve been photographed yourself. His name is Santi Ochoa and he’s been doing it since 2003. In his file there are now more than 20,000 images of T-shirts.

From all of them, he selected 81 for this exhibition ‘La guerra de las camiseta’, (T-Shirt Wars),now finished, in the ABM Confecciones space, on Calle Encarnación González in Madrid. The idea occurred to him last year – “to make the exhibition just before the approval of the Gag Law,” explains Ochoa to Diagonal – but it is only now it has been carried out, motivated by ‘The Last Straw’..

''We Are Not Afrad'
‘We Are Not Afraid’

“After recent events, with the police storming a clothing store with slogans that incited, according to them, hatred or contempt for the Agents, I felt it in my own flesh and I decided to give a minimal response to that,” he recalls. He refers to the police Raid and seizure of abundant material (shirts, sweatshirts, caps) from the Bestiario Shop in Vallecas by the police in early October.

OVER 160 HURT AS POLICE ATTACK WATER PROTECTORS WITH RUBBER BULLETS, TEAR GAS AND WATER CANNONS

daplPosted on November 21, 2016 by  .. Via Unicorn Riot:

Cannon Ball, ND – Water protectors attempting to clear two damaged military trucks from Highway 1806 were met with a militarized response by law enforcement working to ensure the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline on Sunday evening. Police used tear gas, water cannons, rubber bullets, concussion grenades, and more crowd control munitions.nodapl-riots

By midnight of November 20th, injuries to over 160 people were reported, as medics also confirmed that a 13-year-old girl was shot in the face by law enforcement, two people suffered cardiac arrests, at least one person is in critical condition, and many contusions and damage to hands from rubber bullets. Many people were also experiencing hypothermia from the water cannons and have lung and eye irritation from tear gas and mace.

Unicorn Riot reported live on and off through the night as the standoff lasted over six hours.

TheFreeThoughtProject.com provided the following report on the attack:

Witnesses on the scene say police are employing tear gas, water cannons, rubber bullets, mace, LRAD sound cannons, and other weapons, as they moved to encircle the crowd trapped on the bridge — and at the mercy of merciless police.

Police began this assault on the captive group amid a total media blackout — a single Facebook Live video filmed by Kevin Gilbertt is the only live feed of events unfolding, as the already spotty internet availability has also been cut by law enforcement repeatedly during similar clashes.
