Irish student union endorses Israel boycott

Another victory in the BDS campaign to pressure Israel to stop persecuting the Palestinians. Article published in the Israeli daily Haaretz.

Excerpt from article:

"Out of 3,013 valid votes of students who participated in the referendum on Israel, 1,954 — or 64 percent — voted in favor of boycotting Israel, the voting committee announced Friday.
Students were asked to answer with “yes” or “no” to express their support or disapproval of the assertion that, “NUI Galway Students’ Union actively supports the campaign of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against the State of Israel.”
In April, the Teachers’ Union of Ireland became the first educational trade union in Europe to adopt a boycott of Israeli academia.
Last month, the Young Men and Women’s Christian Association in Norway aligned itself with the BDS movement."
