    An African National Congress (ANC) International Solidarity Conference has backed the international boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel.

    The support for BDS follows an international statement presented by Dutch former anti-apartheid activist Adri Nieuwhof signed by 35 organisations from 19 countries.

    In the statement, Ms Nieuwhof called for BDS against Israel as an expression of solidarity with Palestine’s “fight for freedom, justice and equality”.

    In addition she asked for “Respect, protect and promote the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and properties as stipulated in UN resolution 194.”

    The ANC chairperson, Baleka Mbete, backed the statement, saying that she had been to Palestine herself and that the Israeli regime is “far worse than apartheid South Africa”.
