“These are the lives and homes of innocent people - the world needs to intervene and put a stop to this. No more ethnic cleansing!!!!!" -- @dualipa That’s what global star Dua Lipa posted to her 80M followers on Instagram last May following apartheid Israel’s escalation of violence against Indigenous Palestinians in occupied Jerusalem and elsewhere.

Earlier this year, the Palestinian Academy for Science and Technology (PalAST) and the Palestinian Federation of Unions of University Professors and Employees (PFUUPE) sent the following letter to the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) and the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR).

The climate crisis we are living in is the result of centuries of exploitation and oppression through colonialism, patriarchy, white supremacy and capitalism. The most affected populations are from the Global South so far, including the Indigenous Palestinian people.

The Palestinian BDS National Committee, the largest coalition in Palestinian society, welcomes the conclusions of the most recent report by UN Special Rapporteur on human rights in the occupied Palestinian territory, Prof. Michael Lynk, that Israel is perpetrating apartheid against Palestinians. 

Hypocrisy. That’s the only way to describe PUMA’s actions. PUMA enacted swift measures to hold Russia accountable for its illegal weeks-long military invasion of Ukraine. PUMA first ended a sponsorship contract with the Russian Basketball Federation and subsequently suspended its operations in Russia.

In response to Russia’s illegal invasion of Ukraine, a significant number of universities, education ministries, higher education bodies, funding programs, science academies, and publishers have taken swift and wide ranging measures to ensure their institutions were not complicit in Russia’s violations of international law. 

Translated by BDS Movement On March 22, the Faculty of Letters and Philosophy [of Sapienza University of Rome] was to host the presentation of Amnesty International’s report, published on February 1, on the crime of apartheid committed by Israel against the Palestinian population. A few hours before the event, however, the concession of the space, which had been authorized seven days earlier, was withdrawn.

For decades, Palestinians have counted on Indonesia for its steadfast support of their struggle for liberation and self-determination.

The Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) is profoundly inspired by the historic show of support for Palestinian rights by the membership of the Middle East Studies Association (MESA).

Washington, DC – In a 768-167 vote, members of the Middle East Studies Association have voted in favor of a resolution endorsing the Palestinian call for boycotts, divestment, and sanctions of Israel as a way to hold the government accountable for ongoing human rights violations. All full 2022 MESA members were asked to cast their votes electronically on the proposed resolution during a 50-day voting period that lasted from January 31 through March 22.

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

  The largest Palestinian civil society coalition calls on Kenyan governmental organisations and companies sponsoring the Israeli Film Festival in Nairobi to end their complicity in Israel’s decades-old regime of apartheid, settler-colonialism and occupation.
