EPISODE DESCRIPTION

The Peace and Conflict Studies Centre at Sydney University has vowed to continue its support for the international boycott of the Israeli government, despite more than a week of negative coverage in the Murdoch press.

The Australian newspaper has run ten straight days of critical coverage of the centre and its Director, Associate Professor JAKE LYNCH.

Lynch declined to assist an Israeli academic with an education exchange application, saying he supports the international BDS movement, which stands for boycotts, sanctions and divestment.

Despite immense pressure Lynch says he won’t back down to bullying and is sticking with the campaign.

He told 2SER’s Mark Robinson that international opinion is turning against Israel’s occupation of Palestinian land.
