‘Occupy Oakland’ Votes to Support BDS Movement Against Israel

Thursday, February 2nd, 2012

Participants of the Oakland chapter of the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ voted on Wednesday to support the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel. The vote, which took place during a ‘General Assembly’ meeting, yielded nearly-unanimous results in favor of joining the BDS movement with 135 Yes votes, 1 No vote, and 12 abstentions.

One longtime anti-Israel activist and current Occupy Oakland participant said that “most people thought the main thing was to make a statement in support of justice for Palestine, and that’s what they did.” Still, the activist admitted, it wasn’t “entirely clear what [the proposal] was asking of the GA.”
