The Spanish municipality of Montoro declared that it joined the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel for “its discrimination policies and lack of commitment to international laws.”

 

The decision came after the municipal council has recently passed a motion supporting a boycott against Israel.

 

The municipal council reviewed during its session the reasons for adopting the BDS campaign. The council highlighted the international laws and United Nations resolutions that Israel has not implemented. 

 

It also mentioned the illegality of the settlements and the Separation Wall, in addition to the issue of refugees, Israel’s demolition and arrest policies, and the suffering of the residents of the Gaza Strip.

 

The municipality called on other Spanish cities to take the same action and to boycott Israel at all levels until it withdraws from the occupied territories and respects the international law and the rights of the Palestinian people to independence and freedom.

 

This move comes in light of similar decisions to boycott Israeli which were made by other Spanish institutions, the most recent being the University of Barcelona.
