I am writing to ask that you support and continue petition PE01803: Right to Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS)in order to seek oral evidence from the Petitioner, Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign, and to ask the Scottish Government to state explicitly that we have the right to campaign for BDS and that public bodies in Scotland have the right to implement BDS. I am concerned by attempts by government and pro-Israel groups to intimidate Scottish public institutions, organisations and individuals that support and wish to implement a policy of boycott and divestment from state sponsored insitutions or from companies that are complicit in violations of international law and human rights violations. The Scottish Government needs to do more to ensure that Scottish public institutions, organisations and individuals are free to take this approach without fear of intimidation or prosecution. I look forward to your reply.
