Swedish Government Funds BDS Initiative in France (NGO Monitor)
A report published on March 29 by a coalition of French and Palestinian pro-BDS organizations calls on the French government to “pressure” French financial institutions to divest from Israeli banks, communication, insurance, and utility companies.
The report was funded by the Swedish government and the logo of the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA) appears on the publication.
The French government has also directly given hundreds of thousands of euros for projects and core funding to each of the NGOs involved in writing the report.
