(en) The criminalization of BDS at the Autonomous University of Madrid By harrison

Date Thu, 24 Mar 2016 13:56:48 +0200

Dear Mr. Rector and members of the university community: ---- On February 25 was planned at the Autonomous University of Madrid a lecture by Professor Haim Eshach. Varixs students did a nonviolent boycott the ceremony raising a Palestinian flag and chanting slogans against Israeli apartheid. Professor Eshach not come in their own right but as a member of the Ben-Gurion University denounced by his overt racism . ---- The event is part of the international campaign of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) to the State of Israel, which claims: ---- 1. The end of the occupation and colonization of Israel in Palestine and destruction of the illegal wall in the West Bank. ---- ( + Info on Israeli settlements by clicking here ) ---- 2. Recognizing the fundamental rights of the Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel.

3. The respect, protection and promotion of the right of return of refugees, as stipulated in UN resolution 194.

To bring to an end these three goals, arise, among others, actions boycott of Israeli academic institutions for their active participation in the construction and maintenance of the system of colonization and apartheid, including educational discrimination of Palestinians with Israeli citizenship and the hindering of academic freedom in the Palestinian institutions. This boycott, therefore, is not addressed to individual academics or comes to value their opinions. It is intended, always peacefully, ending the accomplice collaboration of our institutions with those of the State of Israel participating in such policies violate human rights and international law. As more than 1200 academics in Spain and a growing number of academic institutions in the world have joined this campaign, maintaining academic relations with these institutions say only contribute to present as normal situation of occupation and apartheid imposed by Israel in Palestine . You can find more information at the following links:

- Web BDS
- Article BDS

Thus, contrary to the contentions of the accusations of anti-Semitism and fascism received, had an anti-racist protest and denunciation of academic complicity with the state of affairs described motivation.

Therefore, in solidarity with the Palestinian people and against the systematic violation of human rights by Israel, the undersigned declare ourselves in favor of BDS and reject the threats of sanctions by the UAM expressed in some media.
