Omar Barghouti is a prominent Palestinian human rights defender and co-founder of the BDS movement. The BDS movement originated in a call from a coalition of Palestinian civil society organizations for the world to boycott, divest from and sanction Israel until Palestinians have freedom and equal rights. We are honored to work with Omar, a compassionate & strategic visionary leader for justice.
You can sign this petition from Promoting Enduring Peace urging the Israeli government to drop the gag order Omar Barghouti’s case, dismiss the charges, and restore his permission to travel abroad and receive the Gandhi Peace Award. The event will be held at 4 p.m. April 23 at Sheffield-Sterling-Strathcona Hall, 1 Prospect St., Room 114, New Haven. It is free and open to the public.
