Divestment From Israel In Its Fifth Year: A History and Method for US and European Activists By Eyad Kishawi

Divestment From Israel In Its Fifth Year: A History and Method for US and European Activists By Eyad Kishawi: "Divestment From Israel In Its Fifth Year: A History and Method for US and European Activists By Eyad Kishawi Al-Jazeerah, January 19, 2006 Introduction The purpose of this article is to introduce the notion of Divestment from Israel to activists involved in Palestine work and equip others who are well versed in the topic with tools that can systematically advance the struggle against the Apartheid State of Israel, who is in turn a proxy of US imperialism. We start from the assumption that victory is an accumulation of incremental successes and that a systematic approach is necessary to maintain a positive trend of accumulation. We assert a discourse that is consistent with the objective of dismantling the exclusionary-racist structures of Israel, and then we propose a sector-based approach to tactically proliferate the discourse. We end with a “cookbook” for launching a divestment movement in different contexts. "
