Stand with Jake Lynch

Associate Professor Jake Lynch, Director of Sydney University’s Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies (CPACS), has been taken to the Federal Court in a legal action brought by Shurat HaDin, the Israel Law Centre, alleging racial discrimination due to his support of the Palestinian call for an academic boycott of Israeli institutions which support the Occupation and dispossession of Palestinian people. These ‘lawfare’ attacks on supporters of the Palestinian Boycott Divestment Sanctions campaign are aimed to silence critics of the Israeli government’s violations of international law and human rights. They also aim to ‘bankrupt’ critics so please contribute to Jake Lynch’s fighting fund.

Reflecting the global grassroots rejection of Israel’s military and political aggression, IAW was held in more than 200 locations in 2012 and more than 150 cities in 2013. http://apartheidweek.org/call-out/
