Jake Lynch Update 1

The latest on the current Israeli offensive against free speech in Australia:

"A landmark court case over whether the Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel is racist and discriminatory will begin sooner than expected, with the parties to debate potentially decisive orders this week. What was expected to be a routine directions hearing in the Federal Court on Wednesday will now see substantive argument, with lawyers for the pro-BDS defendant, academic Jake Lynch, applying to have the case brought against him by an Israeli legal organisation struck out. Professor Lynch will also seek a security of costs order arguing that the plaintiffs are not living in Australia." (BDS legal battle lines drawn, Ean Higgins, The Australian, 10/2/14)
