Since early 2009, SA has played an active role in building Students for Palestine, a nation-wide network of pro-Palestinian student activists and have been involved in demonstrations and campus activity, including the protests against the 2010 Gaza flotilla raid and helping fundraise for the Viva Palestina 5. In 2011, SA members were among 19 arrested in a Melbourne demonstration targeting Israeli-owned chocolate chain Max Brenner as part of the international Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign against the state of Israel.
