WESPAC Foundation supports the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Campaign Against Israel as a non-violent means of pressuring Israel to end its ongoing violations of Palestinian human rights. We support efforts within the Park Slope Food Coop to support the BDS campaign and believe it is appropriate to give the coop membership the opportunity to vote to support BDS and to allow this process to be open, transparent and democratic.
