(GAZA CITY) - A collective of students in Gaza has formed the Palestinian Students' Campaign for the Academic Boycott of Israel (PSCABI). These students are seeking to expand their collaboration and participation in events and activities with solidarity activists at international universities.

PSCABI members participate in many activities here in Gaza and are heavily involved in supporting the international student solidarity movements, especially with the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions campaigns. PSCABI members frequently write letters out of Gaza, some of which we have listed below, encouraging people to participate in the boycott and thanking people who have supported the Palestinian cause.

PSCABI members are available to share ideas, participate via Skype or other technology in remote events, organize and strategize together, hear about your activities and provide information and narratives as Palestinian university students for your distribution, and provide access to voices speaking directly from besieged Gaza.

If you are interested in:

  • communicating with PSCABI
  • hosting a Skype conference with a PSCABI member
  • developing your organization’s relationship with PSCABI

please contact us at pscabi@usacbi.org.

Salem-News.com Editor Tim King, says Joe and his fellow activists in Gaza are among the most important voices in raising awareness over what Gaza has become. "There is no question that the apartheid must end, the Right of Self-Determination; the Right of Return; these are treasured systems of honor that are guaranteed by the United Nations and if Joe and other activists, like Ken O'Keefe and the late Vik Arrigoni did not do what they did, if those steps were not taken, Israel would feel no resistance or exposure and that would be a damned shame. I applaud Joe's work in Gaza greatly and we're thankful that he contributes stories to Salem-News.com in a personal capacity.

End Israeli apartheid
