Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) is a Palestinian-led movement for freedom, justice and equality. BDS upholds the simple principle that Palestinians are entitled to the same rights as the rest of humanity.
Palestinian civil society responds to efforts by the University of Michigan to silence teachers who act in support of Palestinian human rights: "As long as Israeli universities continue to develop weapons used to brutalize and control Palestinians ... steal Palestinian land and provide intellectual cover for Israel’s war crimes, there should be no business as usual with them. Educators who bravely act on principle should be championed, not punished. The University of Michigan is lucky to have them in its ranks."
