Protesters gathered outside the German Representative Offices in Ramallah on Wednesday, following the decision of the German parliament to adopt a resolution declaring the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement as anti-Semitic.
Protesters holding signs and banners rallied outside the offices in Ramallah, while they chanted slogans against the German resolution.
“We have handed [in] a memorandum for the reconsideration of the resolution on BDS because it is a part of the Palestinian people’s struggle,” said a member of the Palestine Liberation Organisation at the protest.
According to Omar Al-Bargooti, a member of the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel, “this protest represents the first step in confronting the German resolution which is against our Arab nation and against the Palestinian cause.”
On Friday, the Bundestag adopted a resolution condemning as anti-Semitic the BDS movement, a group that fights for the liberation of the Palestinian people through a boycott of Israeli products.
