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.
As Palestinians face Israel’s most racist, fundamentalist government to date, which is escalating the violent oppression that has dominated our lives for decades, we call on recipients to reject recognition from institutions so deeply complicit in the silencing and erasure of an entire population.
An Israeli court rejects a freedom of information request for the names of archeologists digging, under IDF license, in the occupied territories, and where Israel is storing the antiquities they uncover. The reason: so they don’t face academic boycott.
