Via the long-quiet Gabriel Ash from Jews Sans Frontières:

On 29th October, representatives of CAPJPO Europalestine, a French BDS group, are to appear in a French court in Paris, to answer charges that publishing the above video of a BDS action that took place in July 2009 at a Carrefour supermarket in Avry, constituted an “offense of incitement to discrimination, hatred or violence against a group of people on account of their belonging to the Israeli nation.”
The plaintiff, the “National Bureau of vigilance against antisemitism (because, naturally, according to antisemites and fake “vigilantes against antisemitism” alike, to speak against Israel is to attack Jews for being Jewish), is looking for opportunities to promote repression of Palestine solidarity activism, and the French state is more than happy to oblige. Europalestine was chosen out either randomly or out of convenience. As a matter of fact, the action was sponsored by a long list of organizations, including a Jewish group (IJAN) and a national political party (the New Anti-Capitalist Party), both of which it would probably be counter-productive for the Zionists to attack in court.
CAPJPO is asking everybody to host this video in solidarity with their struggle against this spurious accusation of racism, which targets political expression, uses laws against racism to defend war crimes, and is a scandal given the magnitude of the real racism that is spearheaded by the state of Israel and defended by this judicial action.
So please host this video.*
The cited activists also ask everybody to write to Monsieur le Procureur de la République près du Tribunal de Grande Instance de Paris Palais de Justice 14, quai des Orfèvres, 75001 Paris, France, and ask to be included among those charged for racial incitement. We should be proud of being “accused” of associations with such BDS actions against Israeli apartheid. To be accused of racism by such racist rascals is a badge of honor.
