In solidarity with Palestine, Norway’s capital just banned Israeli products
In yet another win for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, officials in Norway’s capital Oslo recently passed an order banning Israeli settlement goods and services.
The ban comes as part of the newly adopted 2019 scheme which was approved by Oslo’s recently-elected City Council. The institution is currently led by the Socialist Left (SV), Labour and Green parties.
The recent ruling in the country happened despite huge efforts made on part of Israel and its right-wing allies in Norway “to repress accountability measures in support of Palestinian rights.”
