BDS Australia is a peak body representing a coalition of pro-Palestine associations throughout Australia, dedicated to informing and raising awareness in the Australian community in support of a just peace for the Palestinian people.  We do this primarily by organising and implementing Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) initiatives as part of a growing international peaceful and non-violent effort to pressure the state of Israel to end the illegal occupation of the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza and to respect the rights of all Palestinians according to international law and human rights conventions.
