Yet another attack on an academic for opposing Israel. This case comes from the US. Terri Ginsberg, some member of the academic proletariet, was 'let go' for expressing sympathy with Palestinians in an unwise fashion. The union isn't interested and so there's a petition, less to the college and more to the union to ask them to support one of their members. Which is slightly depressing when you think about it.
Anyway the petition's here. (I've got two urls, one must be right) http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/Protect-Academic-Freedom
You can add your own sarcastic comment about engageniks rushing off to defend her.
