Declaração PACBI

Durante años, académicos israelíes han servido en el ejército de ocupación,

participando o al menos siendo testigo de los cotidianos crímenes cometidos sobre la

población civil palestina. Apenas han denunciado públicamente la ocupación de Israel,

ni su sistema de discriminación contra sus propios ciudadanos palestinos, ni su

imperturbable rechazo al derecho internacionalmente reconocido de los palestinos

para volver a sus hogares y propiedades.

Declaração PACBI

Boycotting Israeli institutions due to their complicity in

Israel’s racist and colonial policies against the Palestinians remains formidably on the

agenda. We may not get tangible results this year, but the prospects for success next

year or the following one are much greater now. Many more years separated the ANC’s

call for boycott of apartheid -- issued in 1956 -- and the actual implementation of

meaningful sanctions. What matters most is that the taboo has indeed been shattered.

Declaração PACBI

PACBI has called for a comprehensive boycott of Israeli academic

and cultural institutions due to their complicity in Israel’s racist and colonial policies.

Dear Mr. Matsuura,

On behalf of the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI), we are writing to express our deep concern about UNESCO‘s recent support for establishing a joint Palestinian-Israeli scientific organization, which in our view marks a serious setback to the cause of just peace in Palestine.

Declaração PACBI

We also call upon world governments to

impose sanctions against Israel to pressure it to comply with international law and the

pertinent UN Security Council resolutions.

It is no coincidence that a similar

advisory opinion by the ICJ, which in 1971 denounced South Africa’s occupation of

Namibia, triggered what became the world’s largest and most concerted campaign of

sanctions directed against the apartheid regime.
