German student groups passed a resolution condemning the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement on June 16 at the German-Israel student conference, the Jerusalem Post reports.

The resolution stated that the student groups supporting the resolution would not engage in any sort of cooperation with BDS supporters, calling BDS “a particularly aggressive expression of Israeli anti-Semitism, for which there can be no room at German universities.” Among the student groups supporting the resolution included “the Christian Democratic students, Young Socialists student groups, Liberal student groups and Green Party student associations,” per the Post.

Jewish Student Union Executive Board Member Ruben Gerczikow tweeted, “What remains is the call for more Israel solidarity & against all anti-Semitism!”

The American Jewish Committee tweeted, “We are pleased to see such consensus on rejecting this hate-driven movement.”

StandWithUs tweeted thanks to the students involved in the resolution’s passage.

The German parliament passed a resolution denouncing the BDS movement in May as anti-Semitic, urging the government not to conduct business with any entities that boycott Israel. On June 3, 240 Jewish and Israeli scholars signed a letter advocating for the German government to reject the resolution. The government has not rendered a decision on the matter.
