HDSA official statement on call to deregister Jewish students at DUT

Habonim Dror Southern Africa condemns, in the strongest possible terms, the call to de-register Jewish students at the Durban University of Technology by the University’s Student Representative Council and the Progressive Youth Alliance. This is a blatant display of Anti-Semitism that is clearly unacceptable in a democratic and free society and contrary to the values enshrined in the South African Constitution. Furthermore, we commend the decision taken by the University’s Vice Chancellor, Ahmed Bawa, to dismiss these calls and affirm that no student will be discriminated against based on religion, race, gender, political affiliation or sexual orientation.

Habonim Dror Southern Africa joins South Africans across the country in celebrating the 25th anniversary of Former President, Nelson Rolihlala Mandela’s, release from prison. This was a critical step on the road to the free and democratic South Africa that HDSA Chaverim are proud to be a part of today. Despite Mandela’s passing, Habonim Dror Chaverim continue to be inspired by Madiba’s commitment to nation building and forgiveness and continue to strive for his vision of a tolerant, equal and just society.
