The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement (BDS Movement) is a global campaign attempting to increase economic and political pressure on Israel to end Israel’s occupation and colonization of Palestinian land, full equality for Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel, and respect for the right of return of Palestinian refugees.
Salima Hamarani talks to Bo Boudart, Producer and Director of the film Paying the Prize for Peace. The film features S. Brian Willson, Vietnam Veteran, peace activist, and attorney-at-law who nearly was killed by a military train during a non-violent protest against the shipping of U.S. weapons to Central America in the context of the Contra wars.
Subsequently, Wilson discovered that he had been identified for more than a year as an FBI domestic “terrorist” suspect under President Reagan’s anti-terrorist task force provisions and that the train crew that day had been advised not to stop the train that hit him.
Since then, Wilson has not stopped calling attention to the US government’s defiance of international law through waging endless illegal wars.
