Students for Justice in Palestine (Brooklyn SJP) is a diverse group of students, faculty, staff, and community members at Brooklyn College, organized on democratic principles to raise awareness about the human rights violations committed by Israel against the Palestinian people. And to build solidarity with the Palestinian Struggle for human rights, justice, liberation, self-determination and the right of return. We organize around the principles of the Palestinian Civil Society call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions of Israel.
SJP believes that while the Palestinian people must ultimately be able to decide their future in Palestine, certain key principles, grounded in international law, human rights, and basic standards of justice, will be fundamental to a just resolution of the plight of the Palestinians. These include the full decolonization of all illegally held Palestinian lands; the end of the Israeli occupation of the Gaza Strip and the West Bank; including East Jerusalem; the implementation of the right of return and repatriation for all Palestinian refugees to their original homes and properties; and an end to the Israeli system of Apartheid and discrimination against the indigenous Palestinian population.
