Mimes and flashmob shame TIAA-CREF over its refusal to allow vote on divestment resolution

Israel/Palestine

Check out this video of a fantastic flashmob at Harvard Square on July 16th, the WeDivest campaign’s National Day of Action. Over 90 folks marched from Harvard Square to the  TIAA-CREF office in Cambridge to protest TIAA-CREF’s investments in Israel’s military occupation– on the same day the retirement giant held its annual shareholders’ meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina. 

They weren’t alone either. At TIAA-CREF offices in over a dozen cities, human rights activists chanted, entertained and informed in response to TIAA-CREF’s refusal to allow investors to vote on a shareholder resolution that calls on the institution to divest from companies  profiting from Israel’s oppressive military occupation.

    Lots of hasbara bots dissing the video on YouTube in the comment section beneath the video. They never stop spreading their lies to misinform the ignorant.

      that’s because the video is dangerously good, the lyrics are hot and the people are even hotter.
