CAIRO: The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Egypt will be launched at the Medical Syndicate Saturday to promote a campaign against companies that “violate Palestinian rights.”
The BDS Egypt conference will be the second in two years. It will be held at Dark al-Hekma at 5 p.m. to boycott such companies.
A large number of parties, political movements, student and labor unions will participate in the campaign.
BDS Egypt marked a significant success in 2015, according to Youm7.
BDS was founded in Palestine in 2005 and began in Egypt in April 2015. The initiative aims to pressure Israel into recognizing Palestinian rights and complying with international law.
