As criticism continues to mount over Israel's violation of Palestinian human rights and of international law, campaigns to silence and repress those who speak out against Israeli apartheid have grown alarmingly.

College and university campuses across the United States now find themselves centre stage in this conflict over free speech: targeted by the Israel 'lobby' for the critical content of their scholarship, academics have been turned away from jobs, denied tenure and promotion, rejected for funding, and even expelled from institutions, while student groups like the 'Irvine 11' have faced harassment and sanctions.

From establishment figures like Richard Falk and former US Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, to professors, postgraduates and activist alumni, We Will Not Be Silenced contains thirteen testimonials from those whose struggle to defend their academic freedom has garnered widespread public and international attention.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'These testimonials provide a stunning and all too familiar portrait of the extent to which the forces that suppress free speech and academic freedom are at work in the U.S. university system' -- Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate
'It is perhaps no surprise that as Israel drifts towards repression and reaction within, and becomes increasingly isolated internationally as a result of the harsh and criminal occupation, its informal lobby in the US becomes more desperate to stifle free and open discussion of the state they seek to protect. Efforts of the kind sampled here, targeting the academic world, are as deplorable as they are predictable, and should be dismissed with contempt, and strongly opposed.' -- Noam Chomsky
'The insightful and captivating testimonials in this book are ... not just about challenging the 'Israel exception to free speech'; they are also about protecting civil liberties and democratic rights at large against the ominous rise of McCarthyism 2.0' -- Omar Barghouti, Scholar and Co-founder of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement (BDS) and the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI)
