Petition, While the French government seeks to criminalize the campaign
Boycott-Divestment-Sanctions against Israeli colonialism, a petition was launched to
strengthen the movement. Solidarity with the Palestinian people in their struggle! ----
Manuel Valls announced January 18, 2015 at a meeting of the Friends of the Representative
Council of Jewish Institutions in France (CRIF) he wanted the French state increases the
pressure and repression against the campaign Boycott Divestment Sanctions (BDS), initiated
in 2005, which is a member of Alternative Libertaire. This is the face of recent media and
attempted criminalization of a vast movement of solidarity, become awkward for the French
state, historic ally of the state of Israel. ---- During summer 2014, the Israeli army
attacked Gaza and the Palestinian territories during strikes and advanced ground
murderers. Many demonstrations of solidarity with the Palestinian people in struggle
organized in France had been banned.
While the BDS campaign is gaining nowadays more and more importance and benefits of energy

WE CALL TO BOYCOTT OF ISRAELI PRODUCTS!
Many associations resent the decision of the Court of Cassation of October 20, 2015, which
declared illegal the call to boycott Israeli products. Here a new appeal signed by several
activists, intellectuals and politicians in defense of the BDS campaign launched by
Palestinians July 4, 2005.
We shall roll us not the decision of the Court of Cassation of October 20, 2015!
On 20 October 2015, in two judgments, the Supreme Court declared illegal the call to
boycott Israeli products and upheld the conviction of several heavy movement activists
Boycott Divestment Sanctions (BDS). She used to this, a section of the press law that
evokes the offense of "incitement to discrimination, hatred or violence against a person
or group of persons because of their origin or their membership an ethnic group, nation,
race, or religion. "
This decision is more than astonishing, it is scandalous. This law is supposed to protect
a person or group of persons discriminated against because of their origin or their
membership or non membership of an ethnic group, nation, race or religion. It does not
provide any way to protect the policy of a state against a citizen criticism when that
criticism takes the form of a boycott of products. Many times, organizations worldwide
have called for a boycott of Burma or Russia, China or Mexico without ever evoked such a
Despite the insistence of the Ministry of Justice, most foreclosures French courts refused
in recent years to consider that the call to boycott Israeli products was part of a
With the decision of the Court of Cassation, France became the only democratic country in
the world where such a ban was taken. For a country that, for a year, has continued to
claim his commitment to freedom of expression is a situation all the more paradoxical, it
is likely that the European Court of Human Rights Human unwelcome return to this judgment.
Even the Supreme Court has to answer for its decisions and comply with universal
principles that are, inter alia, the right of expression.
The BDS movement has created a resignation context of the international community unable
to put an end to colonization or protect Palestinians daily abuses inflicted by Israeli
army and settlers.
This movement for boycott increasingly successful in the world, as the only non-violent
means of pressuring Israel. It allows all those and all those who wish to peacefully
demonstrate their solidarity and protest thereby against the special treatment enjoyed by
this country from the international community despite its constant violations of
international law. That is why we call to support and strengthen the BDS movement and
boycott Israeli products.
First signatories of the call:
Ahmed Abbes, Research Director at the CNRS, Paris; Sihame Assbague, community activist;
Etienne Balibar, Emeritus Professor, University of Paris-Ouest Nanterre; Said Bouamama,
sociologist; Brauman, doctor, essayist; Sonia Dayan-Herzbrun, Emeritus Professor at the
University Paris Diderot-Paris 7; Delphy, sociologist, co-founder of Feminist News
Questions; Alain Gresh, journalist; Nacira Guénif, sociologist, University Paris 8;
Christian Salmon, writer; Azzedine Taïbi, mayor of Stains; Marie-Christine Vergiat, MEP.
To go further, do not hesitate to consult the file Free Palestine! "After the first
Intifada (1988-1993) and the second Intifada (2000-2005), is a third Palestinian uprising
that has shaken the Israeli colonialist yoke . Without freedom, without ending the
occupation without the return of réfugié.es in their homes, without the abolition of
apartheid plaguing the Mediterranean to the Jordan, we must not hope for lasting peace. "
