In the wake of successful/ongoing divestment campaigns at Hampshire College, UC Berkeley, Carleton University, and the University of Johannesburg, a group of students, faculty and community members in Montreal have started to organize a campaign to sever the links between the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, and Concordia and McGill university. Several months ago, this group published a report entitled “Structures of Oppression” that outlines the ‘strong bilateral student exchange programs, joint research projects, and collaborative scholarships’ that Concordia/McGill share with Technion in Haifa.

In May 2011 South African academic and activist Salim Vally gave a lecture at McGill University in Montreal entitled ‘Reading Edward Said in South Africa‘, the presentation focused on the growing Palestine solidarity movement in South Africa and specifically the recent move at the University of Johannesburg to sever links with Ben Gurion university. Salim highlighted the recent step toward the international boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) campaign in South Africa within a history of struggle in South Africa for liberation and in opposition to apartheid. Photographer Ion Etxebarria captured the event in photographs at McGill University.

On March 30th, Palestinian Land Day, Emanuel Navon presented at UQAM. Resident of a West Bank settlement (Efrat), part-time professor in Tel Aviv, Navon is also associate researcher at Ariel University, the target of a major boycott initiated by Israeli academics due to the fact that the institution was built in an illegal Israeli settlement, deemed illegal under the Geneva Conventions.

Emmanuel Navon also works as a consultant for the Israeli military and is a registered candidate for the right-wing Israeli political party, Likud. Additionally Navon is a lobbyist for the Israeli government, currently lead-by Likud, which announced Navon’s talk on the Montreal Israeli consulate website.
