A group of California academics have slammed the recent move by the state legislature to pass a bill on alleged anti-Semitism on campus.
The open letter, from California Scholars for Academic Freedom, blasts the resolution (HR 35) for posing “a clear threat to academic freedom in the University of California and the California State University systems,” undermining the First Amendment and conflating “criticism of Israel or its policies with anti-semitism.”
The letter was posted by the US Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel, and is signed by over 30 scholars working in California.
