South African Students Respond to Singling Out of Israel


In the wake of a decision by University of Johannesburg's faculty Senate to "sever a longstanding relationship with an Israeli university unless certain conditions are met," South African university students and others are pushing back against what they call the "double standard ... used as a weapon to demonize a state and her people."

The Coalition for Clean Water, a student initiative, is circulating a petition strongly condemning the singling out of Israel, which it says harms South African society and deprives the country of much-needed technological innovations.

You can read and sign that petition here.
