National Lawyers Guild
New York - The National Lawyers Guild and other organizations calling for human rights and for the rule of law in Palestine and Israel on February 6 urged academic institutions to reaffirm their commitment to free and open campus debate. The plea for free expression, including the right to call for human rights boycotts, was prompted by a series of repressive responses to the American Studies Association’s recent resolution to adopt a boycott against state-funded Israeli educational institutions. These institutions provide research and training used to maintain Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territories.
