********************

In June 2017, the right-wing and Israel-aligned Lawfare Project filed a frivolous lawsuit against SFSU and Professor Rabab Abdulhadi, attempting to use the courts to silence scholarship and activism for Palestine.

The court dismissed the lawsuit in March 2018 for failing to make a single legitimate claim. “Out of an abundance of caution,” the court gave Lawfare a chance to fix the complaint and provided very specific instructions. Lawfare ignored the court’s instructions and re-filed its lawsuit. Dr. Abdulhadi’s laywers have once again asked the judge to dismiss the case. The court should dismiss the lawsuit for good and not allow for another chance.

JOIN US IN COURT ON AUGUST 8 to stand up to Lawfare’s self-professed attempt to inflict “massive punishments” on scholars like Dr. Abdulhadi for daring to speak against Zionism and advocate for justice in/for Palestine and an indivisible sense of justice.
