Tag Archives: divestment
Debate on divestment and Israel exploded on college campuses last night. For the second time in two weeks, Loyola University’s student government voted to call on their school to divest from corporations involved in the Israeli occupation. But in the vote that captured the most attention, the University of Michigan’s student government voted down a call for divestment. Still, students in support of the resolution said it was a victory to spark a campus-wide debate on the occupation and Palestine.
The University of Michigan student government’s move to indefinitely postpone a vote on a resolution to divest from occupation profiteers has sparked an uproar on campus. The tabling of the resolution caused immediate outrage, with hundreds of students holding an impromptu rally outside to call for their school to divest from corporations like Caterpillar. And last night, over 100 students declared an “indefinite” sit-in at the student government building, calling for a vote on the divestment bill.
On Tuesday night, Loyola University Chicago became the first Jesuit University in the United States to pass a student government resolution to divest from companies complicit in aiding the Israeli occupation. The Senate voted 26-0, with 2 abstentions, to call on the school to remove its holdings from eight corporations that play an active role in the human rights abuses committed by the Israeli government.
As TIAA-CREF gathers for annual meeting in North Carolina, trustees should heed lessons of the civil rights movement
Here in North Carolina, we know that student leadership on issues of human and civil rights can change the world. Every day I pass by the Woolworth’s on Elm Street in Greensboro where the sit-in movement began on February 1, 1960. What started with students demanding they be served a cup of coffee helped lead to the passage of the Civil Rights Act, desegregating public spaces across the country. And yet today, TIAA-CREF supports that same kind of racism through its investment in Veolia Environment, a company directly connected with the operation of segregated buses in the Occupied West Bank.
When United Methodist delegates gather as a plenary to vote on church policies this week, two petitions will be presented that reflect opposing approaches to helping Palestinians.
Delegates to the United Methodist Church General Conference (UMGC) were shown Wednesday a vision of what the future could look like if Israel were to finally end its control of the Palestinian territories.
The Israeli government was pleased that a “60 Minutes” piece on Palestinian Christians did not air on Christmas or Easter. But the report did air a week before the United Methodist Church’s convention, where a divestment resolution is being considered.
Christians for Fair Witness on the Middle East markets itself as a liberal group working for peace in Israel/Palestine. But its budget is bankrolled by philanthropy that funds settlements and Islamophobia.
