On Tuesday, August 30, the California Assembly voted 69-1, with 10 abstentions, to pass AB 2844, the anti-free speech bill. Governor Brown can decide to sign or veto the bill at any time before the end of September. Without any action, the bill will automatically become law.

Governor Brown shouldn’t just veto this bill -- he should be standing with us and the global, grassroots movement for Palestinian human rights. Boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) are a set of non-violent tactics in response to a call from Palestinian civil society to advance freedom, equality, and human rights for Palestinians. These time-honored and court-protected tactics were successful in helping end South African apartheid, following the tradition of the Montgomery bus boycott during the Civil Rights Movement and the UFW farmworkers boycott in California. Back when he was governor the first time around, Gov. Brown supported boycotts for peace and justice -- so what’s different now?
In short: anti-Palestinian groups, and the web of interests benefiting from Israel's industries of occupation.
