UCU: can the last one out, please turn out the lights

For the last few years, my trade union has been obsessed with boycotting Israeli (and only ever Israeli) academics. In the process, it has treated legitimate concerns about antisemitism with contempt, click here for a long list of evidence. Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse, UCU invited a man who has been charged with hate speech against Jews to strategise an anti-Israel boycott. As if that wasn't bad enough, senior figures within UCU have subsequently sought to justify this, here and here. Reasons to remain a member of UCU on a postcard, please.

Thanks for the info. It can be really hard getting help for addiction. I was looking for drug rehab centers and found many useful resources on the web.

Being in boat accidents can cause some major prolems for your life. I found this article to be very informative. Help is out there and it’s easier to find if you know what you’re looking for.
