Our Office knows, from our work with BDS, that your work as human rights
defenders has often been conducted in conditions of hostility towards your
organisation, your members and your clients. This is all the more reason for
congratulations for today’s initiative, and to commend the other human rights and social justice organisations here today with you – it is essential that the broader human rights community recognise that issues related to sexual orientation and gender identity are human rights issues and that it works in solidarity with BDS.
