Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel

The Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) was initiated in 2004 to contribute to the struggle for Palestinian freedom, justice and equality. It advocates for a boycott of Israeli academic and cultural institutions for their deep and persistent complicity in Israel’s denial of Palestinian rights that are stipulated in international law.

PACBI is a founding member of the Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC), and is tasked with overseeing the academic and cultural boycott aspects of BDS.

The BNC, including PACBI, is committed to freedom of expression as stipulated in the United Nations International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and as such rejects, on principle, boycotts of individuals based on their opinion or identity (such as citizenship, race, gender, or religion).

There is no place in sports for apartheid. There is definitely no place in sports for genocide perpetrators. Sports teams, associations and federations must support the Palestinian call to #BanIsrael from sports until it ends its crimes against Palestinians.

PACBI Statement

This Israeli normalization organization is intellectually dishonest and seeks to whitewash Israel’s ongoing genocide in Gaza
