According to recent reports, the Barcelona City Council was on the verge of approving a resolution backed by BDS activists that would end long standing relations between the Catalonian capital and Israel’s commercial and cultural center.
HELP US PETITION THE CITY TO REJECT BDS PRESSURE AND PRESERVE TWIN CITY TIES WITH TEL AVIV: “We urge you to reject pressure to cut Barcelona’s ties with Tel Aviv, as this would be detrimental to the principles of understanding and cooperation. True peace is built through discourse and engagement, not boycotts and isolation, and shunning relations with Tel Aviv would only bolster the rejectionists who oppose a mutually-agreed upon resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
The twin city agreement between Barcelona and Tel Aviv promotes tolerance and harmony across nationalities and faiths, and this is something that must be defended and promoted, rather than undermined and destroyed.”
