Campaign: Right to Boycott
Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions Bill
In The Queen’s Speech on Tuesday 10th May, the government introduced the Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions Bill.

Write to your MP – oppose the ‘anti-boycott bill’
Protect our right to boycott
The government’s plans to stop public bodies from deciding not to do business with companies abusing human rights, or our planet, are completely anti-democratic and a serious blow to our civil society. This gross over-reach is part of wider government attempts to limit our efforts to campaign for Palestinian rights as well as other campaigns for international solidarity, climate and social justice.
