Right to Boycott

PSC is delighted to announce that the government’s toxic anti-boycott bill has been defeated – a major win for BDS campaigners.

This repressive piece of planned legislation was a major attack on democratic rights. It would have prevented public authorities, like local councils, local government pension funds or universities, from making ethical choices about spending or investment.

The government’s stated goal was to shut down campaigns against Israel’s violations of Palestinian rights.

PSC was proud to convene and lead a broad coalition of more than 70 civil society organisations, made up of trade unions, charities, NGOs, faith, climate justice, human rights, and solidarity groups, in opposition to the bill.

The anti-boycott bill has been defeated!
