Boston Coalition for Palestinian Rights (BCPR)
The Boston Coalition for Palestinian Rights (BCPR) was formed in the year 2000 to work for a just solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Such a solution necessitates an end to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip; an acknowledgement of the losses suffered by the Palestinian people and a recognition of their individual and collective rights; the application of international laws and UN resolutions, including the Right of Return; and the establishment of equal rights for the Palestinian citizens of Israel. Recognizing the critical role played by the US government and thus our responsibility as tax-payers in sustaining the Israeli occupation and ongoing dispossession of the Palestinian people, we are seeking to change US policy and imbalanced media coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and to educate the public about realities on the ground.
We are in solidarity with the 171 Palestinian civil society organizations that issued a call for international Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions in July 2005.
