Honorary Globetrotter Kareem Abdul-Jabbar canceled his #Israel gig, join him on the right side of history & cancel today! @Globies #BDS
The UN has issued Israel dozens of flagrant fouls. Stand with the oppressed & put apartheid on the bench! @Globies #BDS
Don’t let apartheid slam dunk on you. Stop the drive and block apartheid with Palestinian civil society. @Globies #BDS
Wrong in South Africa, Wrong in Palestine. Don’t trot on Palestinian rights, cancel your games in #Israel. @Globies #BDS
No globetrotting for occupied Palestinians, Israeli checkpoints & occupation restricts their freedom of movement. #Cancel @globies #BDS
