Dem Presidential Hopefuls Vote Against Anti-BDS Bill, as Van Hollen Says It Will ‘Strengthen’ the Peaceful BDS Movement


Yousef Munayyer, USCPR Executive Director, is quoted in this Mondoweiss article about the recent Senate vote to proceed forward with S.1, the unconstitutional bill that targets advocates for Palestinian rights by infringing on their First Amendment right to boycott.

“Just about every single Senator considering a 2020 run voted no. Democrats most in tune with their base have drawn a clear red line that repressive laws targeting Palestinian rights activism in violation of he first amendment are unacceptable,” Yousef Munayyer of the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights comments. Though he adds: “The real scandal here is that there are 76 Senators that are willing to trample on the Constitution they swore to defend.”
