B’nai B’rith International commends the Central Student Government (CSG) of the University of Michigan for its rejection of a resolution in support of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. The anti-Semitic resolution was presented to the university’s students by the pro-BDS campus organization Students Allied for Freedom and Equality.
About 200 students attended the vote and listened to presentations from both sides on the issue. The CSG voted 34-13 against the resolution, while three members abstained.
We are appreciative of those members of the student government who worked to combat BDS and we urge students at other universities to reject the anti-Israeli and anti-Semitic BDS movement.
