Mustafa Bargouthi, democracy activist and politician, described the WEF as a key part of the international struggle for justice and peace. Invoking the words of Nelson Mandela, who upon his inauguration as president of South Africa said "our freedom will not be complete until the Palestinian people are free", Barghouti urged participants to join the global Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions Campaign (BDS), arguing that a broad international campaign similar to that which eventually brought down the South African apartheid regime is the only way to defeat the Israeli occupation. Presenting his vision of united and diverse Palestine, Barghouti denounced the remarks recently made by Angela Merkel about the failure of multiculturalism, insisting that there is place in the world, and in Palestine, for multiple cultures.
