Roz Foyer, STUC General Secretary, stated:
“The continuing violence inflicted on the Palestinian people by the Israeli Government should shock and horrify us all. We stand in solidarity with all Palestinians standing up to tyranny and oppression by participating in a nationwide general strike today.
“Palestinians resisting the occupation have asked people worldwide to support the BDS movement, and it is our moral duty to push our institutions and governments to comply. We call on the Scottish Government to support the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement.”
