Israeli activist Yonatan Pollak has urged South Africans to boycott his country. He referred to his government as unjust colonialists infringing on human rights. Pollak is in South Africa and lauded the government’s decision to insist on products from the Israeli-occupied territories to be labelled as such.

Pollak has been arrested many times, but he says he’ll continue campaigning against what he sees as atrocities against Palestinians. “A rational step would be to call for boycott of Israeli products all together; the same way that the ANC called for in regards to South Africa and the end of apartheid. Government must not invest in Israel and must impose sanctions,” says Pollak.

The SA Zionist Federation’s Ben Swartz says, “Mr Pollak represents an extreme fringe of Israeli society. He doesn’t speak for anyone in Israel. He represents himself and a very tiny tiny faction of the Israeli society.”

Pollak is expected to leave the country later this week.

About ottwf

The capitalistic and imperialistic system and its systematic aims: profit and power over others, still dominates our world and not the aims of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, as 1948 agreed! After the world-economic-crisis after 1929 and the following World-War the world hat decided with agreeing the Universal Declaration of Human rights, to create a new world order; conflicts should be solved with peaceful means, not nations and their power, but the dignity of human beings around the world should be the aim of the policies and the economy, of every state and the community of states. But soon after the end of the war, when the victims and destruction were forgotten, all continued as before, with all risks, we had seen before. The split in rich an poor is getting bigger and bigger. We also overuse our global environment already, even if the big majority of mankind still lives in poverty! We are not victims, this world is men-made and be changed from men and women! It will be possible, if those, who do not want or serve (because of system-pressure) profits first, but want for themselves and everybody a life in human dignity unite and develop in a global base-democratic movement a common vision for our world, and learn, how to make this vision real. We need for it a big empowerment of many, many common men and women and their activities. Our chances are because of new communication technologies, of common languages, of the level of education and the mixture of people from different backgrounds better then ever. The occupy-movement is a good start for such a global movement. We support it and try to contribute to its success! We choose news and make comments and so try to unite people for an Occupy-Think-Tank: Its tasks: creating a news-network, self-education, working on global-reform programs and learning to organize projects for those, who are suffering. Join us, so that we can build teams for these aims for all subjects and countries as a base for the unification. We have Wan(n)Fried(en) in our name, because it means When peace and it is a modification of the name of the town our base is, in Wanfried, a small town in the middle of Germany, where we can use a former factory for our activities.
