Pro-Palestine activists have called for Israel-Premier Tech to be confronted by "more protests than ever" at both the Giro d'Italia and Tour de France this year, in light of Israel's ongoing invasion of Gaza.

In a post on the official Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) site on Monday, the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel wrote: "We call for more protests than ever along the race routes of the Giro d’Italia and the Tour de France, which will start from Italy this year."
