Sunaina Maira of the Organizing Collective of the US Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel spoke with C.S. Soong for Against the Grain on KPFA, about USACBI’s work and campaigns, and repression of BDS activism in the US. She also discussed her chapter in Against Apartheid: The Case for Boycotting Israeli Universities, the new book edited by Bill Mullen and Ashley Dawson, also members of USACBI’s organizing collective:

Against the Grain says: “What role does the U.S. academic boycott of Israel play in the boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) movement? What kinds of resistance has the boycott movement encountered, and what’s happened to the academic freedom and human rights of Palestinian scholars and students? Sunaina Maira helped launch the U.S. academic and cultural boycott initiative.”
