Many of you have asked for contact information for UCU
(University and College Union) members who voted to boycott
Israeli academics. Below, the names, telephone numbers and
e-mail addresses of the regional and local heads of the
union. Feel free to express your opinions to them, keeping
in mind that not everyone on this list voted in favor of
this resolution. Sally Hunt, joint general secretary, for
example, has stated that she voted against it.
Israel's Minister of Immigration and Absorption has called
upon Jews to refrain from making contributions to British
institutions of higher learning. I say, why just Jews? I
call upon all those who are committed to justice, freedom
and truth to give their contributions to academic
institutions which stand firmly behind academic freedom and
cultural cooperation, and which are not tainted by racism
Unfortunately, UCU members, and the institutions that employ
and nuture them, are guilty until proven innocent. Let's
hear something outloud from Cambridge and Oxford, etc.
removing themselves from this shameful calumny. Until then,
silence is acquiescence.
