The global campaign to boycott institutions and companies complicit with Israeli abuses of Palestinian human rights is frequently met with accusations that it is anti-Jewish. This panel of three Jewish speakers will discuss why BDS is not anti-Semitic, what the boycott is really about, and why they support it. Extended Q&A period will allow for a full airing of the issues, with alternative viewpoints welcomed.

Speakers:

Dr Alana Lentin (UWS)
Scholar and anti-racism activist.

Kathy Peters
Radio documentary producer and Palestine solidarity activist

Associate Professor Peter Slezak (UNSW)
Co-founder of Independent Australian Jewish Voices
