Irish Trade Unions to launch campaign to boycott Israel

The global BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) movement is growing. This week the Irish Congress of Trade Unions declared that it would launch a campaign for boycott of Israeli goods.

From the Belfast Telegraph:
"Trade unionists are to launch a boycott of Israeli goods as part of a major campaign to secure a peaceful settlement in the Middle East, Stormont heard today.

The Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU) launched a report on Israel and Palestine compiled by senior members who visited the troubled region.

As controversy continues to rage over the death toll in Gaza caused by the recent Israeli military attacks, trade union leaders announced they are to hold a major conference this year to act as a springboard for their campaign."
