Wednesday, June 6,2007 00:00
By Ikhwanweb

Three actions, part of a rising global campaign of boycott,
divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israeli apartheid, are taking place in a week of action building
up to an international day of action on Saturday, June 9th.

June 9th marks the 40th anniversary of Israel’s occupation of the West Bank,
Gaza Strip and the Golan heights.
This anniversary takes place just after the 59th anniversary of the creation of the state of
Israel through the expulsion of over 750 000 indigenous Palestinians from their homeland and the establishment of an exclusive,
colonial state.
