Date 30/10/09 Sussex Students’ Union first in UK to boycott Israeli goods FOLLOWING a landmark referendum, students at Sussex University have voted to boycott Israeli goods. The decision will become part of the international Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign, which calls upon Israel to respect international law and end the occupation of Palestine. The referendum received messages of support and thanks from Jewish and Israeli academics and non-governmental organizations that oppose Israel’s policy of occupation in Palestine. Author and scholar Norman G. Finkelstein described the referendum result as ‘a victory, not for Palestinians but for truth and justice’. Iyad Burnat- Head of Popular Commitee and-co-founder of Friends of Freedom and Justice Bil'in -Palestine The committee really appreciates Sussex Students' Union remarkable idea of starting a boycott on Israeli goods. We hope even more people all around the world will follow by our example so that we can put an end to the israeli occupation and dismantle the apartheid wall.
