Tell the Trailblazers to Cancel Their Game Against Maccabi Haifa

The call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) of Israel was initiated in 2005 by Palestinian civil society as a tool to support the struggle for full Palestinian rights. The call included an appeal for the boycott of Israeli cultural and acedemic institutions, including Israeli sports teams. A similar embargo was seen as extraordinarilly effective in raising worldwide awareness of, and opposition to, South African Apartheid (1948–1992), and is an inspiration to the BDS movement of today. As many here are aware, the Portland Trailblazers are scheduled to play Maccabi Haifa next Friday, October 17th. Join us in calling for the Trailblazers to stand up for human rights and cancel their game with Maccabi Haifa.
