Omar Barghouti, co-founder and leading voice of the Palestinian BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions) movement, spoke to a full house at Harvard following his long period of detention by the Israeli military. He was finally able to do his United states speaking tour which had been postponed due to his arrest.

We feature his main address and as much of the question and answer period as time will allow. The Q&A may be a bit difficult to follow because the moderator took 3 questions at a time, and then let Barghouti answer them. We hope you will be able to follow the flow, especially as he responds to some challenging questions from Zionist students.

The best explanation of why Barghouti was imprisoned and and stuck with travel restrictions: Israeli government leaders are concerned that BDS is working. They would prefer to continue abusing Palestinians with long-accustomed impunity.
