The Misuse of United States Law to Silence Pro-Palestinian Students' Speech

Report addresses the misuse and unfair application of an education-related non-discrimination law in the US to protect pro-Israeli students while discriminating against pro-Palestinian students, which violates their right to free speech. The report specifies cases of government surveillance of students, criminal prosecution of peaceful protesters, and university stigmatization of Palestinian human rights activism. It reports suffering by pro-Palestinian students as a result of stigmatization and harassment, among other abuses.
