Black Solidarity with Palestine – 2015 Black Solidarity Statement with Palestine – 1,100 Signatories, 39 Groups
(DEMONIZATION, SUPPORT FOR BDS, DELEGITIMIZATION – Description note – UCLA Afrikan Student Union, BlaQue UCLA, Black Student Alliance at Yale, Black Student Alliance Executive Board – St. Louis University, Black Student Union at UC Berkeley, Columbia University Black Students’ Organization, Spoken Word Alliance at Tufts, Tufts Pan-African Alliance, and Stanford NAACP Executive Committee are among the signatories of a letter that demonizes, supports BDS and delegitimizes Israel with statements of, “Our support extends to those living under occupation and siege, Palestinian citizens of Israel, and the 7 million Palestinian refugees exiled in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and Palestine. The refugees’ right to return to their homeland in present-day Israel is the most important aspect of justice for Palestinians….US and Israeli officials and media criminalize our existence, portray violence against us as “isolated incidents,” and call our resistance “illegitimate” or “terrorism.” These narratives ignore decades and centuries of anti-Palestinian and anti-Black violence that have always been at the core of Israel and the US. We recognize the racism that characterizes Israel’s treatment of Palestinians is also directed against others in the region, including intolerance, police brutality, and violence against Israel’s African population. Israeli officials call asylum seekers from Sudan and Eritrea “infiltrators” and detain them in the desert, while the state has sterilized Ethiopian Israelis without their knowledge or consent. These issues call for unified action against anti-Blackness, white supremacy, and Zionism. .. We wholeheartedly endorse Palestinian civil society’s 2005 call for Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel and call on Black and US institutions and organizations to do the same. We urge people of conscience to recognize the struggle for Palestinian liberation as a key matter of our time…We offer this statement first and foremost to Palestinians, whose suffering does not go unnoticed and whose resistance and resilience under racism and colonialism inspires us. “)
