Melbourne dumps Connex following boycott campaign

Connex has been dumped by the Victorian State Government as Melbourne’s train system operator. Moammar Mashni of Australians for Palestine said that after four months of campaigning and some 100,000 pamphlets distributed, Palestine advocacy groups can take heart. “This is the first step in what we hope will become a strong boycotts, divestments and sanctions movement in Australia against Israel’s apartheid policies,” Mashni said.
