It's on the web.  It's in the news.  The Boycott, Divest, Sanction Movement is gaining momentum wherever people are taking action against oppression.   Major denominations, including the United Church of Christ, the Presbyterian Church, the United Methodist Church, and  Unitarian-Universalists have divested their holdings in companies that participate in oppressing the citizens of the West Bank and Gaza.   Bishop Desmond Tutu has written that the what is happening in the Occupied Territories  is equivalent to what happened in South Africa during apartheid.    And he should know.
