BDS: Catalonian academics and trade unions in push to end collaboration with Israeli institutions

Catalan govt: End collaboration with Israeli institutions!

Over 300 professors and researchers, 50 senior academics, university administrative staff (PAS) and a wide range of Catalan trade unions are demanding that the Catalan Generalitat end its collaboration with Israeli institutions.

A new “university solidarity movement with the Palestinian people will promote active criticism of the apartheid politics and oppression of the Israeli government and denounce complicity of European governments with respect to the systematic violations of United Nations resolutions, international law and the human rights of the Palestinian people by the Israeli state. As part of this campaign, there is a call for civil society and the university community to support the academic boycott of Israeli institutions and the people who represent them, not individual Israeli students.”
