SUPER UW (University of Washington) is a diverse student-led group made up of students, faculty, and community members around the University of Washington in Seattle, working to educate students and the broader community about the struggle for Palestinian equal rights.
Responding to the Palestinian Civil Society call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions of Israel (BDS), we support the nonviolent methods of BDS until Israel meets its obligation to the Palestinian people and international law by:
- Ending its occupation and colonization of all Arab lands and dismantling the Wall;
- Recognizing the fundamental rights of Arab-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.
SUPER UW members understand the struggle for Palestinian equal rights as intimately entangled in global struggles for economic, social, and cultural justice, including the struggles of other indigenous peoples around the world, and the structural inequality we face in our own country. We understand that the true definition of “solidarity” is an honest understanding that our own liberation is tied up in the liberation of others and that the oppressed must lead the struggle. As SUPER UW we also stand in solidarity with local struggles on the UW campus against racism, sexism, homophobia, and all other forms of oppression and colonization. As an anti-racist organization, SUPER condemns all forms of hatred and discrimination including anti-Semitism and Islamophobia.
