Kudos To…

thumbs-up

  • Kudos to San Diego State University Associated Students (A.S.) for passing “A Resolution to Condemn Anti-Semitism.” In passing this resolution, A.S. formally adopted the State Department definition of antisemitism, which includes demonization, double standards, and delegitimization of Israel. They recognized, “that the Jewish people, like all peoples, have a collective right to self-determination” and condemned attempts to “undermine” these rights.

Claremont SJP released a “Statement on Board of Trustees’ Revocation of BDS Bylaw” to the campus community. The statement demonized Israel and reiterated calls for BDS, exclaiming, “we refuse to give legitimacy to the Board’s statement…The actions of the Pitzer Board of Trustees and its absurd desire for “neutrality” serve as an endorsement of the Zionist occupation of Palestine which effectively enable the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians through support of Israeli companies and institutions…we encourage students of the Claremont Colleges to continue to support the BDS movement.”

SUPER and the Student Animal Liberation Coalition co-hosted the event, “Dirty Laundry: Exposing Brand Israel.” The description for the event claimed that “Brand Israel” is an attempt to discredit the BDS movement’s “campaign to end Israeli apartheid,” whose result is “a powerful, militarized, and oppressive colonial nation-state that has been pink-washed, green-washed, and even vegan-washed.” The event also entailed “Learn[ing] how to resist Brand Israel and organize in support of the BDS campaign…[and] stand[ing] in solidarity with PAL as a means of resisting Brand Israel’s campaign of vegan and humane-washing that erroneously paints Israel as the most progressive nation on the planet in terms of animals and veganism as a means of erasing the Palestinian relationship with the land and its animals.”
