Ameinu has been working actively with Anthropologists for Dialogue on Israel and Palestine (ADIP) to oppose both academic boycotts of Israel and Israel’s continued occupation that helps prevent the creation of a Palestinian State. ADIP is a strong proponent of the core philosophy of The Third Narrative and is leading this fight in the field of Anthropology.
In December, much to Ameinu’s dismay, the American Anthropological Association business meeting passed a resolution for a general membership vote on an academic boycott of Israel and rejected a balanced alternative resolution developed by ADIP. More information on the issues and ADIP can be found at: www.anthrodialogue.org
We are currently joining ADIP in calling on all members of the AAA to vote against the boycott. Our friends at ADIP have produced a series of excellent videos explaining their anti-Boycott/anti- Occupation approach to Israel, Palestine, the discipline of Anthropology and international academic collaboration.
Ameinu will be posting each of these videos over the course of the next month as voting continues on the AAA academic boycott resolution.
The first video is now posted at: https://www.ameinu.net/blog/ameinu-video/dan- rabinowitz-on- academic-boycott/
More will be posted each week. Additionally, each video will be shared on the Facebook pages of Ameinu and The Third Narrative (TTN), and on Twitter. Please help by:
1. Sharing each video widely through your own social networks on Facebook, Twitter and elsewhere.
2. Encourage friends to share the videos as well tp get the greatest possible distribution of these excellent pieces.
3. If you are a AAA member, vote before the May 31 deadline.
4. Let Ameinu or TTN know about potential AAA members who could be approached to vote on this resolution as well.
Many thanks for supporting this effort.
