Students for Justice in Palestine at Northeastern University is proposing an anti-Israel referendum requiring the University to boycott Hewlett-Packard (HP).
This Monday, Student Government will be voting on whether or not the proposed referendum adheres to university policy and meets the Fairness of Wording Standard. This divisive referendum directly violates both standards by negating Student Government’s mission and posing a leading, one-sided question.
Threatening this relationship with HP and allowing the hateful Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which calls for the destruction of Israel, onto our campus would harm education, student life, and the overall Northeastern experience.
Join Northeastern students in telling your senator to vote NO on the Boycott HP referendum language!
Find out more about why Huskies for Israel are against the Boycott HP referendum
- The referendum language threatens important relationships with HP - a company that provides students with valuable career and co-op opportunities.
- HP employs Palestinians and is helping to grow the IT industry in the West Bank. This is just one example of how this referendum would harm both Israelis and Palestinians.
- This Boycott HP referendum is part of a larger hate campaign against Israelis called BDS, which is known to deepen divisions between students and lead to anti-Semitism on campus.
