BDS Australia organises, supports and endorses initiatives aimed at boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against corporations, organisations, institutions and governments that profit from the illegal occupation of Palestinian land and the continued oppression of the Palestinian people.
BDS involves BOYCOTTS of products and companies that profit from the oppression of the Palestinian people, financial DIVESTMENT from corporations and organisations whose investment portfolios include corporations profiting from the occupation, and calling for SANCTIONS against Israel as they continue to violate international law.

Elbit produces numerous weapons, including drones, rocket launch and military aircraft systems and multiple surveillance systems, and is a key research and development partner to the Israeli Ministry of Defense.
Elbit surveillance technology and military equipment is used to maintain Israel’s illegal occupation of the West Bank and blockade of the Gaza Strip. Elbit markets its weapons systems, including its drones, as “battle-proven”. This means that they have been deployed against Palestinians living under Israel’s deadly military occupation.
The Victorian Government has entered into a partnership with Elbit Systems of Australia in the establishment of an AI Centre of Excellence in Melbourne, which will work with universities, and other bodies to produce applications that can be used across the defense, homeland security, and emergency services sectors
