Spanish High Court Strikes Down City Council’s ‘Unconstitutional’ Boycott of Israel

A Spanish high court confirmed last week that a city council’s boycott of Israel was unconstitutional.

The High Court of Justice in Asturias declared that a motion passed by the City Council of Castrillón last August — which called for boycotting Israeli companies and those who do business with Israel — violated constitutional civil rights, as well as principles of non-discrimination and equality before the law.

The motion was initially suspended by a judge last January, but appealed by the Castrillón government, which is led by the communist Izquierda Unida (United Left) party.

The Lawfare Project nonprofit, which supported the suit, said its work in Spanish courts since March has resulted in the annulment or suspension of anti-Israel boycotts in the cities of Telde, Montcada, La Roda, Barbate, Artes, and Viloria. The group announced that 28 such rulings were issued in proceedings it sponsored since June 2017.
