UC Davis passes divestment resolution, five other campaigns launched across US
"Meanwhile, a wave of divestment campaigns has started to roll across the country. In California, students at San Diego State University are planning for next week’s public forum on divestment, while students at Stanford University say they have collected more than one thousand signatures from students supporting their divestment campaign.
In Chicago, DePaul University’s Students for Justice in Palestine say they have recently begun a “second phase” of their divestment campaign — a divestment resolution was passed in student government last spring — demanding that the university uphold the vote and divest from twelve companies that profit from human rights abuses in Palestine.
Allied campus groups at DePaul, including MEChA and Feminist Front, have madevideos encouraging students to back the divestment efforts.
And student activists at Ohio State University have officially launched their own divestment initiative. After gathering signatures from undergraduate students, a press release states, Ohio State activists are planning on voting “directly on the issue” later on this semester."
