15 years ago, CUPE Ontario adopted a landmark resolution to endorse the “Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions” movement (BDS), which puts pressure on Israel to respect the human rights of Palestinians. Since then, labour union organizations representing at least 1.5 million workers in Canada have adopted similar motions. Why has the labour movement been such a strong supporter of BDS, and what is the current state of the movement?
This 1-hour webinar will explore how the labour movement in Canada has fought for Palestinian rights, and some of the successes and challenges.
