09.16.2019 Another German court rules in favor supporters of BDS Movement European Legal Support Center-Press Release. The city of Bonn was refusing to admit the German-Palestinian Women’s Association from the annual Bonn Culture and Encounter Festival because the group supports BDS.
Bonn City Council adopted a pro-Zionist motion named, “No place for the anti-Semitic BDS movement in Bonn.” That called for “all municipal institutions in Bonn to deny facilities to BDS groups and to refrain from supporting events of the BDS campaign, or of groups pursuing BDS goals.”
The court ruled that Bonn City Council’s motion was a resolution not a legislative act, the same as the German Bundestag’s May 19, 2019 resolution along similar lines and, as such, “can not justify, form any legal perspective, the restriction of an existing legal right.”
Further, the court ruled that the women being banned from the festival constituted “unequal treatment: that violated several German laws and was “not even remotely justified.”
Berlin attorney Ahmed Abed filed and urgent complaint to the court on behalf of the women. The case was aided by the European Legal Support Center (ELSC) and the International Association of Democratic Lawyers (IADL).
