Boycott racist Arizona and Israel

August 2010
Green Left Weekly;8/11/2010, Issue 848, p18
The article reports on the move of the U.S. Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (USACBI) to boycott Arizona because of its manifestly racist laws such as SB 1070 and HB 2281. It notes that SB 1070 requires police officers to engage in racial profiling and discrimination on the basis of appearance, and the HB 2281 outlaws the teaching of ethnic studies in the schools of Arizona. It also mentions the call of USACBI for other organisations to join in the boycott of the state.
