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.
