UK journalists boycott Israel over ‘IDF aggression in Gaza’
National Union of Journalists of Britain and Ireland decides to boycott Israeli products in protest of Second Lebanon War and ‘Israeli aggression in Gaza’; calls on UK government to impose sanctions on Israel

The National Union of Journalists (NUJ) of Britain and Ireland decided during its annual meeting in Birmingham on Friday to boycott Israeli products in protest of the Second Lebanon War and “Israeli aggression in Gaza.”

 

The resolution, which passed by a vote of 66 to 54, called for a boycott of Israeli goods “similar to those boycotts in the struggles against apartheid South Africa led by trade unions and the Trades Union Congress (TUC) to demand sanctions be imposed on Israel by the British government and the United Nations."

 

The announcement of the passage of the resolution drew a combination of applause and gasps, the Guardian said.

 

According to the Guardian, the NUJ national executive committee has been instructed to support organizations including the Palestinian Solidarity Campaign, Jews for Justice in Palestine and the Council for the Advancement of Arab-British Understanding, the Guardian reported.
