'We are not afraid of you, Mike': Activists react to Pompeo's move against pro-BDS groups

Pro-Palestine and human rights advocates condemned US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's policy announcement targeting groups affiliated with the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign.

Pompeo said on Thursday that the US officially regards the BDS movement as antisemitic and plans to cut any government funding to groups that have voiced support for the campaign - which urges individuals, companies and countries to hold Israel accountable for its human rights violations.

According to J Street's November National Jewish Survey, 22 percent of all Jewish Americans under 40 support the BDS movement, as do several members of Congress.
