PNN/ Bethlehem/

The Central University of Barcelona (UAB) has officially announced its decision to boycott Israeli universities and institutions that have ties, whether direct or indirect, with the occupation of Palestine.

The move makes part of the international initiative “Places without Racism” launched by hundreds of official institutions and universities around the world, PIC reported.

PIC added that in Spain, the global BDS campaign for the boycott of Israel kicked off in 2007 to promote all forms of boycott against the Israeli occupation among the world’s community organizations, unions, as well as political, academic and cultural institutions.
