A Case for Supporting the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement
UIndy Students for Justice in Palestine Position Statement
We are compelled to respond to the needs and demands of the Palestinian people. In recognition of our position as a solidarity organization, we look to Palestinian civil society to determine the course and direction of our work. (1) Therefore, we adopt the following demands from the 2005 BDS call as guidelines for our campaign:
- Ending Israel’s occupation and colonization of all Arab lands as established in 1967 and dismantling the Wall;
- Recognizing the fundamental rights of the Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel to full equality; and
- Respecting, protecting and promoting the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and properties as stipulated in UN resolution 194.
