Decolonise Palestine Teach-In: Campaigning for an Arms Embargo of Israel

By CCMS SFU, April 11, 2024

Over 200 legislators from 13 countries have signed a call, coordinated by Progressive International, for an immediate arms embargo of Israel as a neecessary and imperative measure to stop the genocide being perpetrated in Gaza.

In her recent report “Anatomy of a Gencoide,” UN Rapporteur Francesca Albanese has recommended UN member states to “Immediately implement an arms embargo on Israel, as it appears to have failed to comply with the binding measures ordered by the ICJ.”

Parliamentary initiatives and direct actions have taken place around the world to stop the flow of arms to and from Israel. Meanwhile, BDS campaigns at universities — including SFU — are being explicitly linked to divestment from the arms trade.

In this session, we’ll discuss the significance of this campaign and the strategic challenges and opportunities it faces.
