The energy with which universities and the government are pushing the repressive IHRA definition of antisemitism shows that they recognise the power of campus organising to push for change.
One of the best ways of resisting this is to make the campaign for Palestinian rights at your university even more vibrant and active, platforming Palestinian voices, organising campaigns and making links with other liberation campaigns.

This toolkit has been prepared by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign and the British Committee for the Universities of Palestine.
It is designed to be used to allow both students and academics to oppose the adoption of the IHRA definition within their universities. For those at universities where the definition has already been adopted, it provides resources to challenge and push back against this decision. It provides background, clarity as to why the definition should be resisted, and a campaign checklist.
Local Councils and Public Bodies
This toolkit has been prepared by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign with input
from Free Speech on Israel and Jews for Justice for Palestine. It is designed to be used to aid discussions with public bodies who are being lobbied to adopt the IHRA definition and then use it to suppress activism on behalf of Palestinian rights. It provides background, clarity as to why the definition should be resisted, and a body of resources that can be used to reinforce arguments.
