For more than fifty years, the Palestinean people have been fighting for their right to existence in their homeland against the US-supported apartheid state of Israel. In recent years, Israel has shown no hint of slowing aggressions into Palestinian land through illegal settlements, moving their capital to Jerusalem, and the recent proposal to annex most of the West Bank in Palestine. SDS stands firmly against this aggression into Palestinian land, and will stand in solidarity with the Palestinean people through local and national events. Local chapters of SDS can also stand with the Palestinean people through campaigns of BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanction) on their campus.

The region of Jammu and Kashmir in India, commonly referred to as just Kashmir, is currently under a state of unrest as it demands greater autonomy and independence from India. The deadly treatment of the Kashmiri independence movement by the Indian government is another installment of the treatment of Muslims in India by right wing nationalist forces. SDS stands with the Kashmiri people in their fight for independence.
