Updates from the palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC)

Update

Western universities, education ministries, higher education bodies, funding programs, science academies, and publishers have taken swift action in response to Russia’s illegal invasion of Ukraine. Applying a double standard, higher education institutions have failed to end their complicity in Israeli apartheid. 

BNC Statement

The BDS movement urges the Indonesian government to immediately halt all dealings with Israel as if it were a ‘normal’ state'  and to endorse the Amnesty International report and its recommendations.

Update

The MESA membership voted by 80%  to endorse the Palestinian call to boycott Israeli academic institutions complicit in Israeli apartheid.

BNC Statement

Palestinians are watching with empathy the suffering of millions of Ukrainians facing war, particularly the over two million refugees seeking safety in neighboring countries.

Update

These trips serve to present Israel in a positive light, whitewashing its regime of military occupation, apartheid, and settler-colonialism and its decades-long denial of Palestinian rights, including the right to education.
