Calling on the KTU to support the academic and cultural boycott of Israel

Inspired by the Canadian Union of Public Employees, Britain's National Union of Journalists and now the UCU, I am going to submit a motion to the KTU executive, that the union join the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel. I realize it's a longshot ...

Funnily enough I'm a member of UCU and my partner is a member of the NUJ. In both cases the boycott move (like previous attempts) has caused huge ructions and brought the forces of reaction out in full force. This has even had unpleasant personal implications for one person I know who has been victimised for their support. Anyway, in some sense, since this is really a PR stunt as much as anything, the very fact that it upsets lots of people and gets in the headlines is a good thing.

Do let us know how you get on with your submission to the KTU exec,
