The Graduate Student Organizing Committee (GSOC) at New York University (NYU) decided last Friday to support the BDS movement against Israel, and requested that the university cut off all relations with Tel Aviv University (TAU).

The GSOC is a labor union which represents the rights graduate student research assistants and workers of NYU, and represents approximately 2,000 people. The motion to support BDS was passed by a 2/3 vote.

    I have two children at nyu and I’m very disappointed, discusted and upset about this.
    To me, the BDS is just another form of spreading hatred. It’s appalling how a university allows
    this to happen. Nyu should pull out of Abu Dhabi campus, they haven’t helped any Palestinian or taken in any refugees claiming they have no room. The BDS In a simple word -stupid a great example is soda stream who do they think works in these factory’s. Boycotting leaves all those workers jobless .

    All students and staff of NYU need to banned from entry to Israel for life. Gather up their names and names of all of them in the future, publish and specifically pass a law against them.
