At the end of February Staff and Students at the prestigious
London School of African and Asian Studies (SOAS) voted overwhelmingly
to back the academic boycott of Israel. 73% of the over 2000 votes
cast backed the boycott. They are calling on the School management
to end its collaborative arrangements with the Hebrew University
of Jerusalem. The campaign for a yes vote was backed both by UCU,
the academics’ trade union, and UNISON, the support staff
union as well as by the Student Union.
