What is BDS? Why are people around the world calling for the social and economic boycott of Israel? Why are the celebrities that perform there entrenched in controversy? In this extra-special two-part interview, we talk to the talented and hilarious writer/researcher Alex Verman—who is here to explain why these movements exist, and what we can do to help. We cover the origins of which imperial powers are killing and forcing Palestinians out of their home land, and why organizations like the BDS and PACBI are here to help those affected. Alex breaks down how this issue is not solely a Palestinian conflict, but a world-wide system of colonialism, capitalism, racism, and xenophobia, dirtectly effecting millions across the world. Part two drops next week, stay tuned!
