Boycott Collaboration with Israeli Academic Institutions

We, a group of academics, activists and artists in India, came together in June 2010 to campaign against yet another apartheid regime by extending support to the international campaign for the academic and cultural boycott of Israel.

We believe that academic life is rooted in the values of democracy, equality and justice. When Palestinian students and teachers are not allowed to reach their universities because of permit laws and checkpoints; universities and schools are levelled by bombs and tanks; food, textbooks, and medical supplies are prohibited from entering Gaza, and artistic events are closed down in Jerusalem, none of the foundational principles on which academic and cultural contact are based can ever be fulfilled.
