Journalist Abby Martin has revealed that she was blocked from delivering a keynote speech at Georgia Southern University for refusing to “sign a contractual pledge to not boycott Israel” to comply with Georgia’s anti-Boycott, Divest and Sanctions law.
“After I was scheduled to give keynote speech at an upcoming @GeorgiaSouthern conference, organizers said I must comply with Georgia’s anti-BDS law and sign a contractual pledge to not boycott Israel,” Martin said Friday on Twitter. “I refused and my talk was canceled. The event fell apart after colleagues supported me.”
