Dr. Dalit Baum Speaks on BDS

Dr. Baum, the founder of Who Profits from the Occupation?, spoke about the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement during the Move Over AIPAC Conference.

“Who Profits from the Occupation” is an activist research initiative of the Coalition of Women for Peace in Israel that exposes companies and corporations involved in the Israeli occupation.

Baum is a feminist scholar and teacher in Israel, teaching about militarism and about the global economy from a feminist perspective in the Haifa University and the Beit Berl College. This year she is visiting the U.S. as an activist in residence with the human rights group Global Exchange, directing a new program titled Economic Activism for Palestine, which aims to support existing divestment campaigns in the U.S. as well as help new ones through education, training, networking and the development of dedicated tools.
