The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement is constantly calling out, not only to the public but also to specific figures or celebrities, asking them to acknowledge the rights of the Palestinians and protest against Israeli policies. Lately, Scarlett Johansson and Neil Young’s names have come up. Amelie Phillipson spoke about it with Aidan MacDonald from the Coalition against Israeli Apartheid and Thomas Woodley from Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East, and she filed this report. This segment was aired on Off the Hour, the community-news programming of CKUT 90.3FM.
