Press Release Regarding General Assembly decision to endorse BDS Campaign

The Concordia Graduate Students’ Association Endorses BDS Campaign against Israeli apartheid

Montreal, Quebec January 28 2013 – After heated debate and informed discussion the General Assembly of the Concordia Graduate Students’ Association (GSA) voted overwhelmingly in favour of a resolution to endorse, promote, and participate in the international Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against the state of Israel. Graduate students at the assembly considered arguments for and against ratifying the elected GSA Council of Directors’ December 2012 decision to participate in the growing global movement to pressure the State of Israel to recognize the sovereignty of the Palestinian people. The resolution read as follows: “Be it resolved that the GSA General Assembly ratify the GSA Council of Directors’ decision and endorse the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign against the State of Israel until it respects international law and ends its apartheid system.”
