BDS Monitor Live – April 6, 2016

  • 0

With the presidential campaign in full swing and the academic semester ending, the politics of BDS, have been changing rapidly. BDS tactics have become more aggressive, with antisemitic harassment increasing, especially on campus. SPME’s Live Briefing Series covers recent BDS developments and gives listeners the opportunity to ask questions to SPME staff.

Future iterations of the live broadcast will include special guests from around the world discussing BDS issues, their effects and most importantly successful tactics to stop BDS in their countries and abroad.

Please remember that your support allows us to continue to bring the BDS Monitor and our other special reports about BDS and campus anti-Semitism.
