The ever-growing movement to boycott Israel has become one the most popular non-violent global campaigns to resist the illegal occupation and demand the right for Palestinians to live in their homeland with safety, security and stability. 

The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement aims to raise awareness of the Palestinians' plight by asking ordinary people, companies and celebrities to refrain from endorsing the brutal Israeli occupation.

It has also become one of the most controversial global movements, with Israeli lobbyists claiming the boycott movement is either anti-Semitic or "terrorist" in nature - or both. Israel has taken extreme measures to prevent BDS from growing, including threats and bans.

There are many myths surrounding BDS. What exactly does the movement entail? And how do the debates around BDS shape the Palestinian discourse and plight for freedom?
