Justice for the Palestinians - Statement by academics at the University of Cambridge [07.10.2014]

Justice for the Palestinians - Statement by academics at the University of Cambridge … differences notwithstanding, we are united on several points: First, we wish to add our voices to those of the Palestinian resistance in appealing for an immediate lifting of the blockade on Gaza.

… no satisfactory end to this on-going humanitarian crisis can be achieved without the realisation of a more far-reaching justice for the Palestinian people, including the displaced refugees, and [without] … the realisation of a situation in which the inhabitants of historic Palestine, … are able to coexist under conditions of meaningful freedom and equality – equality of civic status, of respect, and of access to land and resources.

We believe that a radical change is needed in order to achieve this, … it cannot happen without an end to the violence perpetrated by the state of Israel against Palestinians, an end to the siege of Gaza and to the occupation, and an end to the discriminatory and dehumanising treatment of Palestinian citizens within Israel.

Finally, as academics, we are concerned by the recent instances of victimisation of students and lecturers, inside and outside of Israel, for speaking out on this issue. We demand an end to the persecution of critics of Israel within academia, and pledge to lend our support to those targeted.  (ts)
