Bath pulls plug on Is­rael boy­cott mo­tion

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS -

STU­DENTS AT Bath Univer­sity have voted down a mo­tion to adopt a BDS pol­icy on cam­pus. The proposal, which de­scribed Is­rael as an “apartheid regime”, was re­jected by 343 votes to 249 with 216 ab­sten­tions. Yoni Chi­tiyat, act­ing pres­i­dent of the Bath JSoc, who co­or­di­nated the re­sponse to the mo­tion, said: “We only have about 30 to 40 ac­tive mem­bers of our JSoc, so we knew that sin­gle-hand­edly we wouldn’t be able to win the vote. But by reach­ing out to other so­ci­eties and friends we were lucky to win.”
