Human rights club dedicated to nonviolent forms of protest and resistance in order to draw attention to the struggle of the Palestinian people under the Israeli apartheid structure. Supporter of the international BDS movement.
Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights (SPHR) is a student led club at Western University. We are a human rights club that is dedicated to nonviolent forms of protest and resistance. SPHR aims to educate people about the daily struggles of the Palestinians and we try to educate others by drawing parallels between the historical and recent struggles of other humans around the globe. We wish to raise awareness about the plight of the Palestinian diaspora that live scattered across the world. We also seek to inform about the system of Apartheid that Israel is building in the West Bank and Gaza, as well as in Israel proper. We advocate the use of peaceful, non-violent resistance to apply pressure on Israel to comply with international law. We formally endorse the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions initiative , as well as the Canadian Boat to Gaza and the Freedom Flotilla 2.
