BDS campaign against Technion

Via Alternative News:
Over 100 artists and intellectuals — including Judith Butler, Lucy Lippard, Chantal Mouffe, Walid Raad, Martha Rosler, and Gayatri Spivak —have signed on to a public letter calling on participants to withdraw from Creative Time’s traveling Living as Form exhibition on the grounds that it is currently showing at Israel's Technion, which plays a “central role in maintaining the unjust and illegal occupation of Palestine.”

We're talking about the Technion. The Israeli university which recently provided an Arabic online course in nanotechnology for free to Arabs around the world.

Most of the signatories on the BDS letter are American or Canadian, but there are a few Europeans: Chantal Mouffe (Belgian political theorist), Brian Holmes (Swiss academic), Dario Azzellini (Italian academic) and Ariella Azoulay (formerly of Israel).
