University Of Cape Town Considers ’Israel’ Boycott
Local Editor

Palestinian activists urged South Africa's University of Cape Town to impose an academic and cultural boycott on the apartheid "Israeli" entity - a move now being debated by the school's Academic Freedom Committee.

University Of Cape Town Considers "Israel" Boycott

"The rationale for this call is clear - Palestinian human rights are violated by "Israel" on a daily basis with the direct and indirect support from Israeli universities... By implementing an academic boycott, UCT takes a principled position in the defense of human rights and academic freedom," wrote members of the university's Palestine Solidarity Forum.

The committee is now considering the motion, but in order for it to take effect, the measure would have to be approved by the university administration

South Africa has increasingly been a forum for debating the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement against "Israel" - with its ruling African National Congress party recently having put into its platform a commitment to downgrading diplomatic relations with the Zionist entity.
