BDS welcomes withdrawal of court application
Organisers of the Pharrell Williams concert withdrew a court application against the organisation.
JOHANNESBURG - Boycott Divestment and Sanctions against Israel in South Africa has welcomed the decision by organisers of the Pharrell Williams concert to withdraw a court application against the organisation.
On Monday Sun International launched the urgent court interdict against the pro-Palestine group, to limit the number of people who are planning to protest outside the singer's concert in Cape Town next week.
The matter was meant to be heard tomorrow but BDS South Africa's spokesperson Kwara Kekana says the company has made an about turn.
"For us it's not only a Palestine victory but it's a victory for freedom of expression."
