How to strike back at Andrew Cuomo for his unconstitutional Anti-BDS move

Andrew Cuomo unilaterally decided to halt the state of New York’s business with any organization that opposes Israeli war crimes. Obviously, the court battle will proceed and those leading that charge need the support of all Americans who support Free Speech. Americans must also make a point to corrupt politicians who would stifle peaceful dissent.

Campaign donations are the life blood of all politicians. Placing pressure on those who support Cuomo will bring immediate results. Below is a list of Cuomo’s top financial supporters. BDS should immediately expand their boycott to include all of these organizations. Those who support free speech to make their presence known to all of the financiers behind Cuomo. Imagine the social media accounts of these contributors plastered with the images of Israeli brutality. Imagine these businesses unable to do business without the presence of activists. Soon they’d be calling their government lackey and demanding he change his policy. We always complain that officials are beholden to their campaign contributors. Maybe it’s time to start making those businesses pay for the actions of those they own.

Even if you don’t care about Palestine or Israel’s human rights record, an action like this by a government official must be met with the stiffest resistance possible.
