This non-binding resolution offers the city council’s support for any administrative action that would ban or cancel the National Students for Justice in Palestine Conference from being held on UCLA’s campus. The resolution cites the IHRA’s distorted definition of antisemitism and falsely accuses NSJP of violence in support of its call for censorship. The NSJP Conference went forward as planned.

This non-binding resolution offers the city council’s support for state legislation, AB 2844. The bill, titled at the time of this resolution, the California Combating the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions of Israel Act of 2016, was rewritten several times and whittled down following pressure from grassroots activists and after civil rights groups raised concerns that it unconstitutionally punished political speech.

This non-binding resolution expresses the city council’s opposition to student activist efforts calling on candidates for undergraduate student government at UCLA to sign a pledge to not take trips to Israel that are sponsored by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). The resolutions claims that students who refused to sign the pledge were the subject of bullying tactics and intimidation. It states that these efforts do “not concern a policy issue relevant to the University” and calls on the University of California (UC) Board of Regents and President of the UC system to take additional action to stop such efforts.
