The European Human Rights Court has ruled in favor of a group of activists who were convicted by French courts for their support of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement. The activists campaigned at French supermarkets in 2009 and 2010, raising awareness of the oppression of Palestinians and calling for a boycott of Israeli products. The European Human Rights Court ruled their conviction violated the free speech of the activists, and ordered France to pay them damages.
