Dear Bristol Students - Please Respect Our Right to Resist Oppression


We are delighted to see students in universities across the globe who have taken upon themselves to speak up and stand in solidarity with the oppressed. Over 200 different campuses are holding Israeli Apartheid Week events during Feb-March 2016, and many student bodies have passed motions in support of boycott, divestment or sanctions (BDS) at their respective universities.

At the same time, we are horrified to learn of the abhorrent attempts to repress those who challenge the complicity of their universities in Israeli crimes. Such an act is laid out in front of you today, as the Student Council is set to vote on Motion #10 - an anti-democratic motion which attempts to curb freedom of expression with regard to BDS activities and to holding Israel accountable for its actions.
