Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) is a Palestinian-led movement for freedom, justice and equality. BDS upholds the simple principle that Palestinians are entitled to the same rights as the rest of humanity.
The Students’ Representative Council motion expresses "solidarity with the Palestinian people living under an Apartheid state" and supports the Palestinian call for BDS "to achieve freedom, justice and equality for Palestinians."
Scholars gathered at the XIV Mercosur Anthropology Conference in Rio de Janeiro pass motion recognizing BDS as a counter-hegemonic tool "against regimes based on colonialism and apartheid state practices."
As Palestinians continue to resist the increasingly oppressive policies of colonization, military occupation, and apartheid by the most right-wing and racist government in Israel's history, effective solidarity with their struggle for freedom, justice, and equality continues to grow.
