Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel

The Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) was initiated in 2004 to contribute to the struggle for Palestinian freedom, justice and equality. It advocates for a boycott of Israeli academic and cultural institutions for their deep and persistent complicity in Israel’s denial of Palestinian rights that are stipulated in international law.

PACBI is a founding member of the Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC), and is tasked with overseeing the academic and cultural boycott aspects of BDS.

The BNC, including PACBI, is committed to freedom of expression as stipulated in the United Nations International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and as such rejects, on principle, boycotts of individuals based on their opinion or identity (such as citizenship, race, gender, or religion).

Urge Argentina and Uruguay national football teams to stand with Palestinian footballers and cancel the "friendly" match in apartheid Israel.

Action Alert

Let sportswear manufacturer Puma know you won't be a part of the #PumaFam until it ends support for illegal Israeli settlements pushing Palestinian families off their land. 

Action Alert

If you purchased Puma gear before the company decided to support Israel's illegal settlements on stolen Palestinian land, rebrand it by writing “Boycott” over the logo!
