The Palestine Solidarity Alliance of Hunter College is a group of concerned Hunter College students with an aim to advocate for social justice and human rights for the Palestinian people and those under Israeli occupation. PSA of Hunter College believes that fundamental principles of justice and human rights direct solid steps that will be essential to a fair and effective resolution of the Israel-Palestine conflict. PSA organizes in support of the 2005 Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions call made by Palestinian civil society until Israel meets its obligation to recognize the Palestinian people’s inalienable right to self-determination and fully complies with the precepts of international law by:
•Ending its occupation and colonization of all Arab lands and dismantling the Apartheid Wall;
•Recognizing the fundamental rights of the Palestinian citizens of Israel to full equality; and
•Respecting, protecting and promoting the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and properties as stipulated in UN resolution 194.
