Students for Justice in Palestine

The Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) is a student human rights organisation founded in 1993 at the University of California, Berkeley, which denounces human rights violations against Palestinians and calls for the liberation of Palestine. The SJP organisation has over two hundred chapters across universities of North America, from which they have led the student human rights movement for the freedom of the Palestinian people. This has been done by advocating for their demands in physical and digital spaces, addressing university authorities, the Federal Government and the international community into taking action with concrete measures. Along other human rights group, the SJP has participated in peaceful protests and manifestations around the country, released statements calling for urgent actions, and given visibility to the ongoing conflict in Palestine, denouncing the human rights violations that are being taken place there.
