We are an independent network of activists who carry out actions and campaigns to promote BDS' goals in Norway. We are a politically and religiously independent movement that has the intention to create a common platform for all kind of activists of all ages. Our actions are based on non-violence and our main focus is to challenge Norwegian authorities and companies to introduce measures that will put pressure on Israel, in the form of boycotts, divestment and sanctions.
We have a transnational and interdisciplinary collaboration with other organizations in Norway and internationally. BDS Norway was formally established on 11th December 2014 with an interim board, which has the ambition to take a coordinating role in our movement. BDS movement is composed of people from different backgrounds, and the interim board shall organize so that activists can be both instrumental and independent participants.
Currently, BDS-Norway has Oslo/Akershus as their primary activity area and collaborates with other organizations elsewhere. However, we hope that groups working for BDS around the country will eventually be regarded as part of BDS Norway. In other words, BDS can be considered an environment one can actively participate in, and you are free to kickstart campaigns in your own local communities, with support from both the BDS Norway and other organizations.
We hope that this webpage will serve as an inspiartion and resource for people who wish to join our campaigns or even start their own initiatives.
We want to have a tactical approach in our work, and strive for synergies between media strategies, lobbying and targeted actions. We aim to create a dynamic organization with broad support that could lift BDS to a new level. BDS Norway considers boycott, divestments and sanctions as the best means at our disposal to fight for Palestinian basic human rights.
We have come together for this important work to make a difference. Together we will strengthen our struggle for freedom, equality and justice for the Palestinians.
You are more than welcome to join us!
