Atwood protest begins Hudson Valley BDS

Margaret Atwood came to Bard College on Friday, May 21st to receive the Mary McCarthy award, after accepting the Dan David prize at Tel-Aviv University.  Bard was hosting the President's dinner and awards ceremony at Fisher Center.

The protest was at the intersection of Annandale Rd. and Manor Ave. (on Bard campus) from 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM. We had about 18 people and were gathered along the road leading to the Fisher Center.

Our first BDS meeting was held at Doris' House at the end of the Bard Protest. 15 of us have formally started the Hudson Valley BDS movement.

Please join us for future events that we will post on this website.
