An exciting new initiative leads the way on pressuring academic institutions into divesting from companies that are complicit in the continued colonisation of Palestine.
The last few years of continuous targeted attacks on Palestine solidarity efforts have often felt paralysing for activists. The war against the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, led by the political Right and the Israel lobby has sought to criminalise the call from Palestinian civil society, by encouraging governments across the western world to render any campaigns of this nature, illegal.
In the UK, the defeat of the Corbyn project was in part made possible through the vilification of the Palestine solidarity movement, and contributed to destroying much of the existing infrastructure of resistance. Under the guise of fighting anti-Semitism, instead of actually putting resources towards doing just that, the Right spent Jeremy Corbyn's term as Labour leader attacking allies and Palestine activists.
