Sochi, ALRAY - The Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement welcomed the Palestinian student delegation and other Arab delegations’ withdrawal from the World Festival of Youths and Students held in the Russian city of Sochi due to the participation of Israeli delegations.


“We appreciated the principled stand taken by the Arab youths rejecting normalization, especially that the festival alleged to be anti-imperialism, however, Israeli delegations having colonial thoughts and supporting imperialism are invited to take part in it,” the movement said is a press release on Wednesday.


It praised all students and free voices that had withdrawn from the opening session of the festival.
