Why Boycotting Israel Isn’t Anti-Semitic

Tuesday, April 14, 1pm – 2:30pm

Clunies Ross Lecture Theatre, JD Stewart Building, University of Sydney


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.


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
