Speech ‘Action for BDS and context for Gaza, Palestine’: translated into Portuguese and Spanish!

I have been amazed at the interest generated by some of the talks I have recently given on Palestine.

The 9 minute talk in Austin, Texas has been translated into French, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, and Farsi! And all by individual efforts (thanks to Ageel Shatry and Francesco Puglia and Ichiro KASAI) It has gotten more than 47,000 hits so far.

The 30 minute talk in Raleigh, North Carolina (previously discussed here) has just been translated into Portuguese (see here) and Spanish (see here). Again, these translations were done by individuals (thanks  to Tali Feld Gleiser) This speech has gotten more than 12,000 hits.

What does this mean? Quite simply: there is an inspiring energy level  – one that is further empowered by both social media and   the strategy of BDS!
