New guide to beat­ing cam­pus hate

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS - BY DANIEL SUGARMAN

JEWISH STU­DENTS head­ing back to univer­sity will do so with a new re­source to help them com­bat an­tiIs­rael ac­tiv­ity.

UK Lawyers for Is­rael (UKLFI) and StandWithUs UK have re­leased Know

a guide which pro­vides dif­fer­ent sce­nar­ios of po­ten­tial an­tiZion­ist ac­tivism and the le­gal op­tions avail­able in response.

The sce­nar­ios in­clude the block­ing of a meet­ing with an Is­raeli speaker and a boy­cott mo­tion be­ing con­sid­ered by a stu­dent union.

The book­let also pro­vides ex­am­ples of ac­tual sit­u­a­tions in which pro-Is­rael stu­dents man­aged to suc­cess­fully counter such cases, with the help of UKLFI.

Tamir Oren, di­rec­tor of pub­lic af­fairs of StandWithUs UK, said that stu­dents had “al­ready ex­pressed their ap­pre­ci­a­tion” at the in­for­ma­tion pro­vided in the pub­li­ca­tion.

“Stu­dents to­day face many chal­lenges on cam­pus that they don’t nec­es­sar­ily know how to tackle.

“This guide as­sists th­ese stu­dents in iden­ti­fy­ing the is­sues and the con­text in which they hap­pen and de­cide on the right way of ac­tion, whether it is a le­gal ac­tion, a pe­ti­tion or an ac­tiv­ity on their cam­puses.”
