Petition: Defend free speech and human rights and support the BDS

Prof. Stuart Rees, Chair of the Sydney Peace Foundation and Assoc. Prof. Jake Lynch, Director of Sydney University’s Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies (CPACS), have been threatened with legal action by Shurat HaDin, an Israeli Law Centre, through agents acting on their behalf in Australia.

The claim is that Rees and Lynch are backing racist and discriminatory policies through their support for the international Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

These accusations are unfounded and intimidatory. They are intended to stifle free speech.
