- The City of Reykjavík has decided to boycott Israeli goods.
The city council in Iceland’s capital voted by a 9-5 majority on Tuesday to bar all Israeli products from official purchases as long as Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territory continues.
The decision has been welcomed by Palestinian rights campaigners and drawn anger from Israel.
“The boycott, divestment and sanctions movement all over the world is becoming stronger because we know how boycotting goods has influenced other states like South Africa,” Björk Vilhelmsdóttir told The Electronic Intifada by telephone from Reykjavík.
