In this article, the author focuses on the support provided by the Greens, an Australian political party, to Palestine related to the global boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel. He states that Australian politicians do not consider BDS because they are afraid of conservative societies in Australia. He also mentions that when the Greens split in Marrickville, Sydney, New South Wales then BDS related people were defeated in the region.
