The American Studies Association's decision to support an academic boycott of Israel has prompted a backlash against the organization's effort to protest the country's treatment of Palestinians. Over 100 universities have condemned the ASA's decision, including The Ohio State University.

At 6 p.m. on Thursday, January 16, the Columbus branch of the International Socialist Organization and the Committee for Justice in Palestine at OSU are hosting a study session on the Israeli apartheid in Palestine and the Boycott Divestment Sanctions (BDS) movement in Room 246 of Enarson Hall at Ohio.

The BDS movement seeks to use economic sanctions to end Israel's policy of apartheid against Palestinians. Columnist Sherry Wolf has proposed an international solidarity campaign modeled on the movement against South African apartheid. UCLA professor Robin D. G. Kelley has described Israeli apartheid as a program of racist violence.

More information about the study group is available on the Facebook event.
