The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement in Egypt called for a "Twitter storm" calling for the boycott of an Israeli festival that is supposed to be held from 18-22 May, at an as yet undisclosed location in the town of Nuweiba in Sinai in Egypt.

The BDS movement said in a statement that the "Twitter storm" aims to "increase the pressure on those who are involved with the Occupation to withdraw from the festival and to put pressure on the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism and the Union of Workers in Tourism and Hotels to put pressure on the venues hosting these festivals, to prevent them from happening again on Egyptian soil and to cleanse it of the racist and thievish occupation."

It called on all Egyptians to be steadfast in this campaign "until we cleanse Sinai of Zionist festivals, and until the hotels hosting such festivals reverse their decisions."

The BDS movement affirmed its commitment to boycott campaigns, raising awareness, blogging and boycotting hotels and venues involved with the occupation.
